WHile I think it is a great idea to name something in this city after Martinand Coretta King (and I wonder why it has taken so long to do it). the opening sentence of this article say a lot:
"After months of discussion and debate, the Palo Alto City Council tonight is poised to commemorate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his wife, Coretta Scott King, by naming City Hall's front plaza after the legendary civil rights family."
Why did it take months of discussion and debate?
I know this is Palo Alto and nothing can be done the easy and quick way--everything, including naming a plaza after a great american must slowly wind it's way through the PA process.
Wonder why businesses are fleeing this city and no new ones are interested in opening here?
