Martin Luther King Holiday Considered

The left should decide what it wants more: Martin and Coretta King as symbols of the liberal agenda, or a Martin Luther King, Jr. federal holiday.

If the national remembrance of Martin Luther King Jr.’s life work actually is something other than tribute to the importance of legal equality, then the King holiday should be reconsidered in favor of another one that will stand for that principle.

Addendum 2/8/06: Project 21 had plenty to say about the politicization of Coretta Scott King’s funeral.
