Nothing like blind patriotism and fear to keep people acting rationally and making sense:
(AP) DENVER, Colorado -- A homeowners' association in southwestern Colorado has threatened to fine a resident $25 a day until she removes a Christmas wreath with a peace sign that some say is an anti-Iraq war protest or a symbol of Satan.Bob Kearns, president of the Homeowner's Association took it upon himself to valiantly address complaints from "3 or 4 people" and the offense they've taken over a symbol of peace.
"Somebody could put up signs that say drop bombs on Iraq. If you let one go up you have to let them all go up," he said in a telephone interview Sunday.Kearns ordered the Homeowner's Committee to require removal of the wreath. When the committee refused, he fired all 5 members.
