Spelling Out Cecil B. Moore

Members of the Cecil B. Moore Philadelphia Freedom Fighters are distressed by recent changes they've seen to street signs and SEPTA buses. Instead of spelling out the full name of the revered civil rights activist, SEPTA bus displays and some newer signs simply say, "C.B. Moore." The signs will be fixed, but SEPTA claims their abbreviation is an issue of visibility. Thankfully, no one is lobbying for Cecil B. Moore's middle name—Bassett—to be included on the SEPTA display. No one would ever catch the bus. [Daily News]
