My "Ridiculous Item of the Day" -- 12/17/2004

By Michelle Malkin ยท December 17, 2004 11:25 AM

Secularists in Vermont have demanded that a state-run veteran's home take down a cross decorated with red, white, and blue lights. Employees at the Vermont Veteran's Home had put the large cross atop a gazebo to honor local Vermont Guard troops who left last month for a tour of duty in the Middle East. After trustees of the home ordered the cross removed, local residents banded together and found an alternate location for the tribute.

Here's the story in the Bennington Banner, a follow-up, and outraged letters from residents.

You can find contact information for the Vermont Veteran's Home here. The trustee who led the drive to take the cross down is Arthur Farris. E-mail the veteran's home at jminer@vvh.state.vt.us
