Heaps and Heaps of Irony

Celebrants of Martin Luther King Jr.'s life may relish his view from the mountaintop but, in Houston, they have to get over the heaps of irony that stand between them and the annual parade.

Seems that those seeking to honor a man dedicated to fighting segregation had to submit to a court-ordered integration of their previously separate events.

And, the day after the forced experiment, one leader once again stood alone in the permit line to be the first/primary/solitary(?) organizer for next year's focus on togetherness.
