Fun facts about MLK day [Jan. 17th, 2005|02:26 pm]
The American Caliban
  1. http://www.martinlutherking.org/ is an anti King site run by white supremacists

  2. King's speeches in their official repository at Stanford online are only available as PDF's which you cannot print or fully save to your hard drive because of jacked-up DRM.

  3. All the websites about him are horrible. They all have missing parts, or their DNS is blown up, or they are full of typos, or they're tiresome agitprop for some other cause.

  4. James Bevel, the guy who made that wonderful speech I quoted below, has since been Lyndon LaRouche's running mate and shilled for the Moonies.

Reminds me of King's remark in one of his sermons about life being a process of building a temple and never quite getting there.

And then there is, of course, his severly irony-deprived daughter
