Get Back, Coretta…

The greatest editorial writer in the country (my strongly held opinion before he won the Pulitzer), Leonard Pitts of the Miami Herald, wrote an interesting column on the passing of Coretta Scott King. Although I stand by the praises I extended her way (appreciated, I’m sure), I can’t counter Pitts’ much-more-informed take.

He takes his privileged position to criticize some of the more money-grubbing nuances of how the King family has treated MLK’s legacy. I guess he was stating concerns I’ve had from what I’ve read but haven’t felt comfortable mentioning. From my position, I’m not entitled to do so, but Pitts is, and, as usual, he does so with eloquence.
