We have roads in Miami-Dade with as many as three names. I have a niece who has asked me who the people are, and I don’t know what to tell her because I don’t recognize the names.
We name streets after slain police officers, accident victims, attorneys and businessmen. Entertainer Arthur Godfrey may have been an anti-Semite, but he did a lot to help grow the city of Miami Beach — you can Google him and find him on YouTube. And it doesn’t harm a child to learn what anti-Semitism is.
Don’t strip more history from our county.
