‘MLK Memorial 2011’

Whether you love it, or hate it, the new Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial on the Mall has certainly gotten people talking. Its dedication, postponed by Hurricane Irene, is now set for October 16th. The original festivities were slated for approximately 250,000 people, and I would imagine that the October date will still draw that many. We haven’t heard yet if Metro is planning to expand service again around the dedication as they had planned to for the late August date.
