  •  JFK - I wrote a diary about it (0+ / 0-)

    You can find it here:

    Our diary author stated that MLKjr was his ONLY hero and didn't qualify it to politicians or people in public life.

    •  Practically everyone names (0+ / 0-)

      their father and fallen soldiers as their heroes, so there's quite the qualitative difference between the diarist's and your (as initially stated) quantitative difference.

      I put you on the spot because your "only one, how sad" comment struck me as unnecessary, condescending, and distracting.

      •  But the diary author made no qualifiers (0+ / 0-)

        He didn't write that MLKjr was his favorite hero, or his most admired public figure he wrote that MLKjr was his ONLY hero, and if that is a true statement it is profoundly sad. To live your whole life with only one person you really admired just seemed like such a sad statement.

        •  The diary is about the cover-up of torture. (0+ / 0-)

          To condescendingly comment about the first introductory sentence after the epigraph is to distract from the forest for a leaf.
