Mohave Cross Can Stay, Sez SCOTUS

The Godz in Black -- barely -- got something right today. They allowed a cross, erected on Federal lands in 1934 to honor American soldiers who died in WWI, in the middle of the Mohave Desert, to continue to stand, saying that the Federal government can accommodate some degree of religious expression under the First Amendment.

Apparently five judges found the phrase "free exercise thereof" buried somewhere in plain sight in the 1st Amendment. What's appalling that the other four couldn't. Reading glasses, if not classes, apparently are in order for some of the Justices.

Anyway. One should be grateful for small favors; it's about bloody time. Now, can we have our Creche back on Mound Road? Thank you very much.
