Keys to the city

Freddy Flintoff, I learn here, has been given the Freedom of the City of Preston -- which apparently is a big deal, letting him stay out at night and walk in front of processions and maybe jaywalk down the main road and such.
Imagine trying to reward an Indian player by giving him the Freedom of Jumritalao, though. Our team members take their cue from the legendary legal whiz Clarence Darrow. Seems when Darrow won a case, the woman who was his client gushed, 'Dear Mr Darrow, how can I show my appreciation for all you have done?'
'My dear,' says Darrow, 'ever since the Phoenicians invented money, there has been only one answer to that question.'
