The public squabbling and legal battles this family engages in is a detriment to the legacy of MLK and should be a personal embarassment to his heirs.

Greatness does, in some cases, take just one generation to completely dissipate.

If you look at what MLK stood for, there is NO way those articles should be profited from. Shame on the boys on this one.

If the brothers do intend to seek monetary gain through the sale of the Nobel and MLK's personal Bible, that is more than appalling.

I'll bet Dr. King is turning over in his grave about selling two of his most prized earthly posessions. I have a gut feeling there is a lot going on behind the scenes that we don't know about.

Obama could give them his Noble Prize. He's not using it.

Atleast MLK attempted to bring peace. A large part of the population would agree he succeeded to a certain extent. Obamma must be using his as a paper weight. Dont you love it that Obama receieved his prize before he brought even a hint of peace? Tell your kids they should get a A on their school papers before they do their homework.

Obama may need to sell his prize to pay restitution to the families of those his drone program is murdering.

Gotta admit, fiscally, this sounds perilously close to charging to visit Dr. King's grave. What's not for sale if these are?

Obama receieved his prize before he brought even a hint of peace -- Far as I can figure we are still at war on several fronts.
