I just have a minute to briefly let people know (h/t to roofingbird in comments, last post) that the Morisette display has been taken down. According to the article, the mayor ultimately talked Morisette into it, though the national outrage, and the neighbors silent protest yesterday also played a role. I’d like to think our actions here at P&L played some small part in that. The Secret Service did investigate the incident as well. I’d like to thank Andy once again for posting the numbers of the neighbors, who played a significant role in getting this display taken down. I’d also like to thank readers who took the time to follow through on their outrage. Success, at last. How does it feel?
Also, did you hear Palin pulled in 16,000 people in the tiny nearby town of Jeffersonville, IN yesterday? I couldn’t attend because I am drowning under a load of grading, which also serves as my excuse for my absence here the last day, and my continued absence until tomorrow. See y’all on the flip side!
