Here's a picture I took of a house through the trees back in the 1960's. I've become a better photographer since then.
The best speaker I ever heard in person was Martin Luther King Jr. It was some time around when this picture was taken. Within a year or so. I was attending a convention of the Radio and Television News Directors' Association in Chicago. The luncheon speaker was the former President of the United States, Dwight D. Eisenhower. He wasn't very good. Stumbled through his speech poorly.
After a break Dr. King was introduced. I think I was sitting in a front row, just a few feet from him. After first apologizing because he had forgotten his notes back in his hotel he then spoke, sans notes, for 30 to 45 minutes. No "ums", no "ahs", no hesitation. Just a truly gifted speaker and a great speech.
We miss him today.
