Aretha Franklin gets a freeway of her own

If you've got a "Pink Cadillac" -- or any other wheels -- you'll soon be able to motor down a Michigan highway named in honor of Aretha Franklin.

The Michigan state legislature voted overwhelmingly to rename a Detroit-area stretch of M-10 as “Aretha L. Franklin Memorial Highway.” After that 101-to-six vote, the bill moves to the state Senate for final approval. The six "no" votes all came from Republican legislators, one of whom said he thinks the honor should be reserved for first responders and military veterans.

The Senate is expected to agree to rename the stretch of road, which starts near New Bethel Baptist Church, where Franklin’s father was pastor. (Detroit Free Press)
