No laughing matter

Jerry Lewis just can't get any respect. There was a fatal auto accident on Jerry Lewis Way at 3:00 a.m. this morning, but the press release issued by Metro police spelled the street like this: "Jerry Louis."

At least the misspelled street namesake is in good company when it comes to asphalt memorials: The cross street for the accident? Dean Martin Drive.

And yes, they spelled Dean Martin right. Rat Pack members -- even from beyond the grave -- are still royalty around here.

We can almost hear Lewis now:

"Hey OF-ficer!"
