MLK, Jr. Memorial

Yesterday was the opening of the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Memorial on the National Mall in Washington, DC. The dedication is coming up on Sunday (and Aretha will be there -- one waits in breathless anticipation to see what she will have perched on her head!). Here some more factoids about the memorial. While I work on getting to DC myself, I'll look forward to hearing a report from someone who's been there.

Update (Thursday evening): The foundation building the new memorial to Martin Luther King Jr. on the National Mall said the dedication has been postponed due to Hurricane Irene, according to the Associated Press. Executive architect Ed Jackson Jr. told the AP in a statement that no new date has been set for the dedication originally planned for Sunday (more info).
