Boston’s Attempt to Honor MLK Jr. Has Gone Seriously Awry

Boston paid $10 million for a statue to honor MLK Jr. and Coretta Scott King.  It was just unveiled on Boston Commons.  It appears a tad provocative.

So did Boston get its money’s worth?

My first thought was that “This is Boston’s ‘Marie’s Statue’ moment.”

And apparently, I am not the only one who sees something amiss.

Oh my.  Modern art indeed.
