Martin Luther King jr was a great man. A man to be honorred. Having his man on something should be a badge of honor. Why is it that towns and cities take the most run down, drug, crime, and prostitue ridden street and name it after this great man? They say it's to inspire the people to have pride in their street and clean it up. But rarely, if ever, does this work. As it stands now, if you want crack or a prostitute, you could go into any major city and just ask where MLKjr BLVD/ST/RD/AVE is, and you would be hooked up. Why not do increased police patrols, community policing, and general increase community involvement, and then when the street was cleaned up, name is after Dr. King. Why not make his name a reward for success, and not a branding of failure.
