MLK Memorial completes in 2009, not 2008

Just one point of correction to some reports on the memorial build; it is now scheduled to be completed in 2009, not in time for the 40th anniversary of King’s death in 2008. A spokesperson told me: ” Unfortunately, with these types of monumental endeavors, the time line can be tricky. There are a lot of reasons that the completion date has been pushed back, including construction issues, materials, etc.”
