A few days ago, we reported that the MLK Jr. memorial had been approved and that it was awaiting its building permit.  Well, that permit has now been issued.  Secretary of the Interior, Ken Salazar, officially signed a permit allowing construction to begin.  The memorial should be completed some time in 2011.
