Here's another street name idea — M.L. King from beginning to end

My earlier item on a potential name change for Confederate Boulevard inspires a friend with an impish streak to make a suggestion that nonetheless strikes me as interesting:

I have always wondered why the City stopped Martin Luther King (formerly High Street) at I-630. Did they not want to have any state offices have a MLK address? What is the significance of Woodlane St?

Indeed. The former High Street is M.L. King from its southern terminus to Interstate 630, where it becomes Woodlane for three blocks in front of the state Capitol.   If the legislature is bound to hang onto Robert E. Lee Holiday,  maybe they'd at least petition the city to put King's name on the street in front of their house.

PS — And, chimes in another friend, isn't it time to reverse the slap the City Board gave President Clinton by naming the street after him only from Cumberland to the library? It should be President Clinton Avenue from the library to the Train Station. Then Markham or Third.
