With major King observances close at hand, the state’s M.L. King Commission is in turmoil. I’m glad Stephens Media decided to lay out the story. I’d been receiving some correspondence, but having plunged into this muck once myself some years ago I just couldn’t muster the enthusiasm to plunge into it again. I don’t mean at all that it isn’t news. I mean only that I’ve concluded that the petty politicking that has long distinguished this commission’s work is virtually intractable.
