Wonder if any other southern states are participating in this...Louisiana can have one for William Tecumseh Sherman's tenure as superintendent of the Louisiana State Seminary of Learning & Military Academy.

Based upon the criticism that opponents of this idea have, it would logically follow that negative events in a person's past disqualify any and all public displays to honor an individual. That being said, then there should be no honoring of W.E.B. Dubois, who among the many positive contributions he made, defended segregation, and tried to impove upon existing segregation during his lifetime. He also defended abortion, defended and admired Stalin, and became a communist.
So the NAACP leaders today should be in complete agreement that W.E.B. Dubois should never have a license plate bearing his memory, and should not be honored during Black History Month.

I agree with that. If the gays can erect monuments to themselves in San Francisco then those on the right can be honored too. Why should MLK have his own federal holiday when Washington gets lumped into "President's Day"? MLK is not my hero.
