Picks and Pans Review: Channeling King
WHAT WOULD HE THINK OF THE PRESIDENTIAL RACE? He'd be exhilarated that an African American and a woman have the possibility of being elected, and that [Senator] Obama had the courage to start a dialogue about the 800-pound gorilla of race relations.
ABOUT THE IRAQ WAR? He'd be against the preemptive war, but would understand why Bush did it.
ABOUT AFFIRMATIVE ACTION? I think he'd say we don't need it.
WHAT WAS HE LIKE? Very humorous. Fearless, but aware of his mortality. There was an unspoken assumption that he wouldn't live a long time. The anniversary of his death is very hard.
