I'm sure there is probably a picture of him with Jane Fonda somewhere too. :roll: I take all this with a grain of salt. For instance, everybody changes the way they talk depending upon whom they are talking to from baby talk to when one is speaking with the boss. I find myself affecting a slight sou...

In Wilmington we have a MLK Blvd which is officially not using reverend in front of it. It'd be interesting to see who does have one. Silly thought, but interesting. As to the original street name I have no idea who that is and I like to think myself pretty knowledgeable on the debate.. Was she bor...
