King Ridiculous

He had a dream — as did, apparently, the person who came up with this:

Organisers of an art project have apologised over claims Martin Luther King Jnr’s “I have a dream” speech was penned in Liverpool’s Adelphi Hotel.

Liverpool Discovers, set up to “celebrate the greatest stories seldom told” about the city, published the claims in a tourist pamphlet.

The report goes on to say that the information in the Liverpool Discovers leaflet was based entirely on contributions from members of the public — a research technique known as “The Wikipedia Method”.

Martin Luther King Jnr is such a revered figure. This event’s organisers should really have been a bit more careful about using his name so casually.
