Do not mess with Sheridan Road.
Editor's Note: Some Tulsa streets have been named to honor individuals. Tulsa World reporter Randy Krehbiel found it is unclear how Sheridan Road received its name but some believe it is after Union Gen. Phil Sheridan ("Brady Street is now Reconciliation Way, but Tulsa still has a few other dubious namesake streets," July 1).
