You Just Can't Make This Stuff Up

Apparently, a cross in the Mojave Desert built to honor fallen soldiers of WWI is at the center of the ACLU's latest attack on common sense.  They want it removed.  Because it "has been judged to be an unconstitutional display of government favoritism of one religion over another."  I had to check the URL to make sure I hadn't stumbled onto an Onion post unawares...  nope.  This is from the Washington Post. 

For now, the 6.5 ft tall cross stands encased in a wooden box.

Now that's freedom and tolerance for ya.

My Day Without Cats

Normally, for an event like this I'd do a bit more. I have house guests this week. So, I'm just going to post my dogs' yearbook photos. From obedience school of course! (Ok, maybe they're just from this website... lol)

Masha, class of 1950

A Day Without Cats

I Has a Hotdog is sponsoring "A Day Without Cats" on 9/9/09. While everyday around here is a day without cats, I thought I might pass on this info for all the other dog lovers out there who would like to give their canine companions a day in the spotlight. Enjoy!
