Well said. All this started by someone who doesn't even live in the town! Thanks for wasting my tax dollars to deal with this crap!

The article in the Times had me think they ought to keep it as well.
What he did in WWII was terrible, but I think outside of that he is historically relevant and accomplished enough to still deserve honor in the United States.

Is this person from East Brunswick willing to foot the bill for the residents to change street maps, notify emergency services, pay for the people of the street to have their checks & drivers licsences changed,make all of the calls to credit card companies & magazines & also the price of the new street sign. I bet not. Why don't they just worry about what is going on in their own town. I have lived here for 12 years & had no idea where that street even was, they obviously went looking for something to complain about. If you have so much time on your hands why don't you volunteer for the boys & girls club or reading to children.

Bravo If each one of us put our efforts into solving the real problems of today: loss of jobs, threat of foreclosure, children not having enough to eat, families with no healthcare, higher taxes, budget cuts to schools, what a better world this would be for all of us.

Article today in the NYTimes that the last city in France has gotten rid of its Petain street ( http://www.nytimes.com/2011/01/03/world/europ... ). The French had to live under this mass murderer so they have had the good sense to banish his name. I guess Milltown residents can't empathize. If the street were named for Bin Laden, Stalin, or Hitler, would the Millwood residents be willing to take a few minutes to fill out those change of address cards???

Israel has been, by far, the largest recipient of US foreign aid any where in the world. Since the inception of Israelís close diplomatic relationship with the US all the way through 2008, Americans gave Israel over $103 billion, according to the American Educational Trust..President Barack Obama in late 2009 approved an additional $2.77 billion for Israeli foreign aid in 2010, and another $30 billion over the next decade.

I think with much foreign aid they can name a street anything they want !!
