Since I Forewent My Usual St. Martin Luther King Post

Here is an homage to the slain activist by comparing him to Il Duce:

The Philanderer and the Phony.

In other news, The St. Louis Review gives prominence to King on their front page slideshow, placement #1. It would've been nice to see them step up to the plate and provide a piece on abortion, this being the anniversary of that dred decision. Not even in the slideshow rotation.

Hi Diogenes,

Thanks for the feedback. We're sorry, we did drop the ball a little bit on today's anniversary coverage. For the last week, we have had a local story on the Roe anniversary in our top stories, but that should have been moved up for the actual anniversary. We also have a second piece on abortion survivor Melissa Ohden that's been posted on our site for the last several days -- she has quite an inspiring story. Later today we placed a national story about the Roe anniversary on our top rotating module.

I will be attending the March with fellow photographer Lisa Johnston, so please be sure to check back to our website later this week for updates from D.C. We have some pretty incredible interviews lined up -- inspiring stories that we are eager to share with our readers.

Oh, and I forgot to add that we have not had any coverage on Dr. King on the Review's website, stlouisreview.com.

You'll notice the title oft he Mass has changed. To make it clear that the Mass does not honor King, beginning this year, it is officially called "The Archdiocesan Mass for the Preservation of Peace and Justice," taken from the title of the oration in the Roman Missal.
