Brick-a-brac

Flaming Lips T I remember the last time I was in Memphis, I saw exactly one sign along Elvis Presley Boulevard, and it seemed to be about three or four feet above the streetlight, presumably to discourage theft. Which is by way of saying that the Visitor Center in Oklahoma City's Bricktown — 25 South Oklahoma Avenue at Flaming Lips Alley — would like you to know that you can now get T-shirts with an illustration of the actual street sign at that intersection, perhaps in the hope that people won't steal the sign if they can get an image of it. Lead Lip Wayne Coyne, for his part, said that he'd heard some fans were already planning to snatch the sign, which surprises me hardly at all.
