Lincoln and King and 22nd Street

Not sure if you already saw it but for those of you who didn't, Steve Magruder wrote in to the paper with his suggestion for what to do with 22nd Street.
Lincoln and King
I have a simple, make-everyone-happy solution to the brouhaha over the idea for a Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard:

Turn 22nd Street into MLK Blvd. to the south of Market (as is now being pushed), and change 22nd into Abraham Lincoln Boulevard to the north of Market.

Imagine: An Abe Lincoln exit off of I-64 and a boulevard that flows from emancipator Lincoln into civil-rights activist King and ultimately intersects with the powerful favorite son, Muhammad Ali.

This is definitely an idea that should be looked into and I commend Steve on the idea.
