the controversy over remembering Mrs. King

Below, Jersey Slugger notes his surprise at the amount of attention that has been focused on the passing of Coretta Scott King. Check out that conversation (it's a good one), but I think it's equally interesting and surprising how controversial that event became. Before I share thoughts, some video:

Via Crooks and Liars:
A summary of the event and the controversy from MSNBC's countdown.

Via Expose the Left (yes, I read "Expose the Left"):
Reverend Joseph Lowery's controversial comments.
Jimmy Carter's controversial comments.
Debate over the issue from Hardball.

Check it all out, read the NYT story (or others), and share your thoughts. I'll do the same later tonight.
