  •  Thank you for this amazing diary, TomP! (7+ / 0-)

    I've been haunted all week by the words in the Letter from a Birmingham Jail that you posted on the 15th. I can't thank you enough for that. And for this, too.

    I remember Coretta Scott King mentioning several years ago that gay rights were next on the agenda for Dr. King. Talk about radical. But he saw clearly what too many of us still see so muddied today.

    I can imagine that the reverend would also be appalled at the way we are treating the planet.

    At least the war on the middle class is going well...

    •  Mrs. King was always supportive of gay rights (0+ / 0-)

      and she saw that as clearly a part of the King legacy. It's important to remember that when we look at Dr. King.
