Silence as Betrayal

I've not found time to write any MLK stuff of my own today, but here is a good post from Matt Yglesias about how difficult it was for King to speak out against the Vietnam war, given that LBJ had gone way out on a limb to support King and the civil rights movement, and, so, couldn't King just sort of keep quiet about that Vietnam thing for a while...?

An interesting take on something I had never thought about in quite those terms.
