    I applaud the cause, but I can't help but feel that the goal is somewhat misguided. Romero's career as a filmmaker was virtually anti-Hollywood. Even his few studio-financed films were shot well outside the confines of Hollywood. He should get a walk of fame star, but it should probably be situated all by it's lonesome in either the Evans City cemetery or the Monroeville Mall.

    Agreed. I can't believe he'd care. Frankly, I can't believe anyone would care; what is this, the 70s?

    George Romero gets a bronze bust at the Monroeville Mall:
    It's a very good likeness, and I hope the mall's around long enough for people to see it. :D

    I'm glad I was able to visit before they moved the JC Penny and all the gang violence.

    There was a zombie museum on the first floor when I went. It's probably gone now.
