Old York, Old York

It's an internin' town, and they want these vagabond bones to ever sleep, as King of the hill, head of the heap?

"Every taxi driver I talk to, every shopkeeper I talk to, they are very excited about it - they want Richard back in York," said Michael Ormrod, professor of medieval history at the University of York. "There is a view that he is a king for York."
York City Council said Wednesday it is petitioning the government and Queen Elizabeth II, arguing that "one of the city's most famous and cherished sons" - who grew up in the region and was once known as Richard of York - should be buried in the northern city.
You had us at, 'every taxi driver'.
