Bird of Paradise Quoted at Powerline
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 After 17,000 alumni signed an internet petition against the removal and the loss of a $12 million donation that was withdrawn it has now been decided to return the cross to the chapel (but not in the front) and put it behind glass.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.
