James Earl Ray

Someone’s getting fired
If you are groaning at the alternating morbid and schmaltzy tone of this week’s entries, check out this Washington Post story.

    ‘LAUDERHILL, Fla. –A plaque intended to honor deep-voiced actor James Earl Jones at this city’s Martin Luther King Jr. celebration instead is erroneously inscribed to James Earl Ray, King’s killer.
    “Thank you James Earl Ray for keeping the dream alive,” reads the plaque, which has prompted outrage among civil leaders.’

As Mark says, too bad it’s too late to give The Duke a plaque made out to John Wayne Gacy.
