I'm not much given to woo-woo mysticism, but I cannot read the last few paragraphs of the "mountaintop speech"  and come away with any conclusion but that he KNEW, somehow, that that was his last night on earth, and the last speech he would ever give

he was certainly clued into something most are not, and not that he was super-human, we all have the ability, he was just actively practicing it.

I've got an mp3 of that speech.  I've listened to it once or twice a year for the last five or six years.  Goosebumps every time.  It's like a farewell speech.

And you can flame all you want about religion, but he is one of the greatest examples of Christian martyrdom.

Wait, I thought he was the guy who nailed the pope to a church door?

Wow, what an amazing account. Thank you for sharing it, subby.

I'm thinking hookers, smoke some reefer, go to the 7-11 to get some malt liquor and a carton of menthol cigarettes, then rob the clerk when he wants money for it, the listen to rock 'n' roll while drinking sloe gin until he wants hookers again, but white ones this time.  And no dirty stinky Hippie ones, either.

I'd rather read the transcripts of his 14 hours at the Willard Hotel on January 6, 1964, but we'll have to wait another fourteen years for that.

Tidbits:

Dr King did anticipate being assassinated.
He requested of his staff that should he be attacked, that he be taken to a Catholic hospital.
He was shot at 6:01 PM, contrary to the U2 lyrics.
He was taken to nearby St Joseph Hospital where he stayed alive briefly, attended to by nuns.
The hospital was heavily guarded by National Guard.

That the greatest American ever wasted his final energy to advance AFSCME makes me ill.

God, why couldn't the bullets have hit Jesse Jackson instead?

I'm the same way. Shivers up my spine each and every time.

So this is the guy all those streets are named after?

Um, we don't know yet what Joe Montana will do in his final hours, and its not appropriate to speculate.

...or he received death threats almost daily, had already survived one assassination attempt and figured he'd get killed eventually.

No, that's Jesse Jackson, Tito's brother.

If the guy was such a saint, why are the streets named after him so typically dangerous to walk down at 1 AM?

I think that honor goes to Ma Kettle.

They finally unsealed his FBI files?  No, not until 2027? Never mind, then.
