AUSTIN (AP) - A yearlong party is being planned to celebrate what would have been LBJ's 100th birthday next year.

The "Lyndon Baines Johnson Centennial Celebration," which kicks off January first and lasts through 2008, will honor President Johnson's "can-do spirit" at events across Texas and in Washington, D.C.

Johnson's 100th birthday would have been August 27, 2008.

Johnson's daughter, Luci Baines Johnson, said her father would want today's generation to celebrate his birthday by continuing his work for social justice.

Lyndon B. Johnson died in 1973, just four years after leaving office.
