Belafonte uninvited from King funeral

It is hard to believe, but the funeral for Coretta Scott King could actually have been more politicized and less respectful. From the Cleveland Plain Dealer:
Harry Belafonte on Tuesday explained his absence from Coretta Scott King's funeral. Belafonte told reporters before a speech at Case Western Reserve University that President Bush influenced the King family to disinvite him from the funeral in suburban Atlanta on Feb. 7. Belafonte said he was told about the decision the day before the funeral, at which he had been scheduled to speak. The King children made the final decision, Belafonte said, but they were "fiercely intimidated by the president's representatives."
Well, duh. Harry, I don't know if you've noticed, but you have been a raving lunatic for years now. Why would any responsible person want to share a stage with you. By the way, happy birthday, Harry.
