Godzilla Gets Hollywood Walk of Fame Star

Godzilla received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Monday, 50 years after he stomped onto movie screens and hours before the premiere of his latest film, "Godzilla: Final Wars."

As far as giving credit where it is due to one of the major mythopoeic icons of the 20th Century, I say better late than never!

I'm so excited about this event I might even be persuaded to post some of the scholarship I've contributed in homage to this Japanese saga, such as: Godzilla: Metaphor for US-Japanese relations in the Atomic Age or Godzilla: Son of Kabuki
