DeEvening Links: Happy MLK Day


A tradition returns. (Ricky Carioti - THE WASHINGTON POST)
The District’s Martin Luther King Jr. parade was back on the civil rights leader’s namesake avenue and back on his namesake holiday. Dana Hedgpeth reports: “Previous parades had been moved to the spring for better weather or had been canceled entirely, organizers said. But this year the celebration made a comeback, with roughly 300 cheerleaders, musicians and others marching south along a two-mile stretch of the avenue named for the slain leader. Thousands of people, flocking into the city from Silver Spring, Clinton, Anne Arundel County and Baltimore, watched on a chilly winter day filled with sunshine.”
