Magorn: 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


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.

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.

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.


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

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.
