OLYMPIA, Wash. - State officials, besieged by requests for more seasonal displays at the state Capitol, have approved several more - including a "Festivus" display honoring a faux holiday popularized by TV comedian Jerry Seinfeld.
The new display requests come on top of an anti-religion placard, a Christmas tree and a Christian nativity scene erected earlier this week and a pro-religion sign added Friday.

† †Frank Costanza: Many Christmases ago, I went to buy a doll for my son. I reached for the last one they had, but so did another man. As I rained blows upon him, I realized there had to be another way.
† †Cosmo Kramer: What happened to the doll?
†Frank Costanza: It was destroyed. But out of that a new holiday was born: a Festivus for the rest of us!

I've never been so proud of my state.

Two Apples Up - but I like Happy Newton Day better than The Ten Days Of Newton

Ixnay on the Estlingwray! †GOP will hear you. †And Arden and Louis don't need any encouragement either.


On a totally unrelated note, I'm at one of the Baylor-affiliated hospitals in Dallas with my pregnant wife (who's on medical bed rest for the holidays). †I know it's not quite the real thing, but I was wondering if I should send Dembski a gift from the cafeteria? †Maybe some jello?

You don't have to worry about us. A bigger worry is that Erasmus will pop up with one of those pictures of those leather/S&M types that he seems to be so preoccupied with.

Did Fred Phelps' sign end up being displayed?  I haven't found any confirmation yet.

Here's the wording they wanted to put up:

Quote
You'd better watch out, get ready to cry, You'd better go hide, I'm telling you why 'cuz Santa Claus will take you to hell. He is your favorite idol, you worship at his feet, but when you stand before your God He won't help you take the heat. So get this fact straight: you're feeling God's hate, Santa's to blame for the economy's fate, Santa Claus will take you to hell.
