Every time I listen to an excerpt from one of the speeches of Dr. Martin Luthur King, Jr., I am convinced further that, other than Adolph Hitler, James Earl Ray may have committed the greatest of violent crimes of the twentieth century. Nobody has been able to duplicate his contributions, and, in tribute to his greatness, precious few have tried.
