Ghandi . . . King . . . Meadowlark

I asked Meadowlark Lemon: You are known as the clown prince of basketball, and deservedly so. You're a world-famous entertainer. But there have been trials and tribulations along the way. In some of the cities where predominantly-white crowds cheered your on-court performance, there were restaurants where you could not eat and hotels where you could not stay. But you persevered with a relentlessly positive attitude. Now those times and ways are gone -- and you are still going strong. How did you do it?

His answer: humor.

I'll explain on the radio.
