    Just in time for Dr. King's day, I saw this article. Since I've never been to Memphis, I would have figured there was already a street named in his honor. There are around 900 cities/towns that have a street named after him but not in Memphis.

    He has an interstate in town named after him, something that's gotten buried every time I've seen this story today.

    Someone better notify Microsoft so they can adjust their GPS program.

    If the second sentence is buried, then, yes, that fact was buried in this story.

    I bet they don't have a boulevard named after Elvis Presley.

    What they really need is a BB King Street.
