What committee decides whether a person deserves to have a street named after them, post-mortem? I mean, really. Come on!
Well, actually, someone must, because Peter Jennings has his own street near ABC News' studios in Manhattan.
A portion of West 66th Street is now also known as Peter Jennings Way.
I am clearly not a part of this streets-named-for-dead-folk committee, or I'd known about this way earlier. So, I will refrain from giving my opinion about whether the late, esteemed journalist should be living it up (err, wrong terminology, sorry) on the West side.
All joking aside, though, this does beg the question of who is deserving of such an honor and who makes that call.
