A screaming ambulance rushed a mortally wounded Dr. Martin Luther King through Memphis to St. Joseph Hospital – a Catholic hospital. King, a Baptist minister, had reportedly asked to be taken to a Catholic hospital should anything happen to him. 
He was in Memphis for the third time in 17 days because of protests involving striking sanitation workers. Only 24 hours earlier the well-known civil rights activist delivered his now-famous “mountaintop” speech at the Church of God in Christ headquarters located in the Mason Temple. King told the crowd that “something is happening in Memphis; something is happening in our world.” 
He went on to eerily conclude his speech with the now-legendary words: “Well, I don't know what will happen now. We've got some difficult days ahead. But it really doesn't matter with me now, because I've been to the mountaintop."
And now, just a day later, he was clinging to life in an ambulance.
The date was April 4, 1968.

Question of the Week:

The city of Crawfordsville announced it was forming a panel of elected officials to handle economic development last week because they could handle it better than the staff and board at privately held Indiana West Advantage. A couple of days later, the city of Crawfordsville announced it wasn't succeeding in managing the municipal golf course and was bringing in a private company to run it. What conclusion do you draw from these decisions?
