It is a sign of progress that Martin Luther King is now a broadly acknowledged American hero, the only non-president honored with a national holiday, celebrated by left, right and center. But we do history a disservice by whitewashing MLK’s legacy.


Which is why every year around this time, I get a kick out of conservatives claiming MLK as one of their own. The latest was Vice President Mike Pence, who invoked King to defend President Trump’s wall proposal, stating : “One of my favorite quotes from Doctor King was, ‘Now is the time to make real the promises of democracy.’ You think of how he changed America. He inspired us to change through the legislative process to become a more perfect union. That’s exactly what President Donald Trump is calling on the Congress to do.” (by John Avlon, CNN senior political analyst and anchor)

A Dallas man is still riding high over Tiger Woods’s victory at The Masters — even more than you might expect. He bet his pregnant fiancé he could name his son Tiger if Tiger won the tournament. Trey Little is a die-hard Tiger Woods fan. He watched Tiger play in person in February with his fiancé Denise Coleman by his side.

Before Tiger teed off at The Masters last Thursday, Little put proof of his passion on paper. He typed up a contract stating, “If Tiger Woods wins the masters this week, I (father) get to have the option of naming our son (coming September 2019) Tiger Little.” Little said he presented the contract to Coleman at work.

“She certainly got a kick out of it,” Little said, adding his fiancé thought it was a safe bet. They both signed the contract.

老虎伍茲贏得美國名人賽冠軍,達拉斯男子Trey Little高興極了,(你沒想到吧)因為他之前跟懷孕的未婚妻打賭說,要是老虎伍茲勝利,他就要把兒子取名老虎。Little是老虎伍茲忠實粉絲,今年二月還跟未婚妻Denise Coleman親自到場觀賽。

老虎伍茲四月參加名人賽之前,Little 用白紙黑字證明他對伍茲的熱愛。他打了一份合約,載明[如果老虎伍茲贏得本周名人賽,我身為父親有選擇權,把我們2019年九月出生的兒子命名為Tiger Little。]他把這份合約帶去未婚妻上班地點給她看。

他說未婚妻大樂,於是兩人簽了合約。他說Denise 覺得這個賭風險不高。
