Only thing I did was wrong was stayin’ in the wilderness too long

Thanks to Susan Russell and The Admiral of Morality for recommending in recent days that we honor the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., by re-reading his Letter from Birmingham Jail. Look, too, at this temporizing statement from Birmingham religious leaders, including the Episcopal bishop of Alabama, who opposed the way King pursued his goals.

Those of you in the DC area, might want to celebrate Dr. King’s birthday at Washington National Cathedral, which is hosting a speech by Sister Helen Prejean, author of Dead Man Walking at 2 p. m., followed by a concert by hip-hop artist Bomani Arma.
