Within 24 hours of wrapping up events to honor the late Martin Luther King, Junior, several Houston event organizers are already getting a jump on plans for next year. This morning, the Houston Chronicle is reporting at least 14 separate applications have been filed for 2012 MLK parade permits.

City ordinance only allows four groups to be granted permits, and only one group will be able to use the city's premier parade route along Allen Parkway.
