Kingdom come

Construction has finally begun on the long-awaited $120m garden and 28-foot high statue of African-American civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr in central Washington DC, following the granting of permits on 29 October. (They still need $13m.)
Members of King’s family charged the National Memorial project $761,160 to use his image and his words in its fundraising materials (but not for the memorial itself).
