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.
