NYTimes.com: Family of Dr. King Charged Group Building His Monument
The family of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. has charged the foundation building a monument to him on the Mall about $800,000 for the use of his words and image, an arrangement one leading scholar said Dr. King would have found offensive.
This article is from 2009, but I came across it while reading about the MLK Jr. memorial. Pretty shocking that you’d need to license the image of MLK Jr. and his words to honor him with a memorial.

I really thought that these two would be great players for the Reds and the building blocks for the future.

WSJ.com: ‘Angry Birds’ Spreads Wings
“Angry Birds” is flapping from touch screens to big screens, books and toys, testing whether one of the best-known mobile apps can become an entertainment franchise akin to Mickey Mouse and Iron Man.
Mr. Maisel says he is talking to potential writers, directors and financing partners about getting an “Angry Birds” feature film off the ground.
If they’re going to do an Angry Birds movie then they need to get Michael Bay to direct it. Giant CGI birds crashing through buildings to save humanity, all in 3D.
