Please read. When finished, please put in comments what, exactly, Broder is talking about here. Is Beck like King? Is he not like King? Are the crowds at the '63 March going to find an echo in these folks? Or perhaps a distorted, white, mirror?
I really don't understand what this column is attempting to say, other than, even nearly 50 years ago, David Broder was so important his employers wouldn't bother him while on vacation. Except when a bunch of colored people threatened to come to the nation's capital and complain that they were being treated badly. Obviously, as Broder says, a mob.
