Irreplaceable Martin Luther King Jr.

When I think about the 1960’s, it brings back memories of death and funerals.

I was 11 years old when the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. was shot and killed in Memphis.  I would have sworn I was watching The Girl from U.N.C.L.E on a black and white tv in my room but it turns out it was probably The Flying Nun, which just illustrates my faulty recollection.  I also thought his was the funeral that involved a train journey but no, that was RFK a few months later.
