Bird of Paradise Quoted at Powerline

I have been too busy living life in "real time" to have done much blogging lately. I have, however, managed to enter a few comments in various threads in various places. Paul Mirengoff at Powerline apparently felt one of my comments worthy of quoting at length today in a post entitled, "Has the Wren Chapel cross been 'saved'".

The issue concerns William & Mary's university chapel and current school President Gene Nichol who, by personal fiat, had the chapel cross removed because it apparently caused him (and others unnamed) offense. After 17,000 alumni signed an internet petition against the removal and the loss of a $12 million donation that was withdrawn it has now been decided to return the cross to the chapel (but not in the front) and put it behind glass.

Unbelievable but true.

In any case, I am taking being quoted by one of the Powerline guys as a compliment.
