MLK and ignorance of history

In retrospect, inducting Martin Luther King Jr. into the Pantheon of American Heroes may have been a mistake and a disservice to what he fought for. Unfortunately, to make King an icon, we have had to make him non-controversial. We had to hollow him out, enabling anyone to fill that vessel with whatever supports their agenda. This is unfortunate, because his struggle continues.... Read more»

Villa Prezelski: Remembering the day Kennedy died

On Nov. 22, 1963 I was just couple of months in my freshman year at the University of Arizona. I hung out with about 10 or 12 kids at “our” table in the Student Union. I was sipping on a Coke when Janie came in. Janie was upset. She said that Kennedy had been shot. We didn’t believe her. She repeated the story, begged us to believe her and began to cry. Then we realized what she was saying was true.... Read more»

Carr: Reflecting on JFK

I remember watching on TV a caisson rolling through the streets, carrying a coffin draped with an American flag. But it wasn't until I saw the riderless horse with boots reversed in the stirrups that it began to dawn on me that something really out of the ordinary had taken place. I knew about horses — Western heroes rode tall in the saddle, leaned forward into the danger, and never died. So why was this horse without a rider? This wasn't right. Didn't the good guys always win? ... Read more»
