|Many of you sent e-mails about the speakers at Coretta Scott King's funeral. Some excerpts:
Mark Foss, Walker, MN: "Shame on those people who used the funeral for their own political agenda. The focus should have been on Mrs. King's life and achievements."
Gretchen Obert, Washington, DC: "Per usual, Bill, you just don't get it. What Al Sharpton and Jimmy Carter said was perfectly appropriate."
Yvonne Legore, Hanover, PA: "The behavior of Jimmy Carter was atrocious. How can we teach children to be respectful when supposedly dignified people act this way?"
Joshua Whiting, New York, NY: "Better to expose the truth even at a funeral. Any opportunity to shine light on the shame of injustice is good."
Barbara Snyder, Cypress, CA: "The sole purpose of some of those speakers was to shine a light on themselves. I find that disgusting."
