Obama, Gandhi, and MLK: A Love Story

The Los Angeles Times brings us a delightful tidbit about the leader of the free world.Obama released a statement regarding Mahatma Gandhi’s birthday. In the statement, Obama says, “Americans owe an enormous measure of gratitude to the Mahatma. His teachings and ideals, shared with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on his 1959 pilgrimage to India, transformed American society through our civil rights movement.”There’s just one problem.Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated in 1948.Surely Obama’s statement was just poorly worded. But you would think the man who wants to set an example by banning texting while driving government vehicles would also want to set an example on proper grammar and writing.
