Elvis Presley to be Named Posthumous Honorary Citizen of Budapest

The Associated Press reports that Budapest's mayor will declare The King, Elvis Presley, a posthumous honorary citizen of Hungary's capital and a city landmark will be named after him.
Mayor Istvan Tarlos said Wednesday that Elvis will be commemorated because of his support for Hungary in the wake of the short-lived, anti-Soviet revolution of October 1956.
On the city's website, visitors can pick one of 12 locations to be renamed after Elvis, including street crossings, a small square and a site at the foot of Margaret Bridge, which spans the Danube River. Voting closes March 15th, so there will be two weeks until we find out what's being named after The King.
