rinselberg has the scoop on this fast-breaking news blockbuster

The Justice Department says a 29-foot war memorial cross on a San Diego mountain is not an unconstitutional promotion of Christianity and should remain on federal property.

The Obama administration said an appeals court ruling declaring the cross on Mount Soledad a violation of the constitutional separation of church and state undermined an act of Congress and conflicted with recent Supreme Court decisions.

But, in a filing Monday to the nation's highest court, it said an appeal should first be considered by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals because there is no imminent risk that the cross is removed. Last month, the Mt. Soledad Memorial Association asked to skip the appeals court and go straight to the U.S. Supreme Court, saying it wanted to hasten resolution to a legal dispute that began in 1989.

The brief by Solicitor General Donald B. Verrilli Jr. said "additional time for reflection" may cause the 9th Circuit to reconsider its position. It says the Justice Department will appeal to the Supreme Court if it loses. . . .

I wonder if folks of the "Wichita" persuasion have ever slanged this symbol as the "Jesus sticks" or something like that.. just a thought that came into my head at this moment, for better or worse. Actually, I just thought of someone on this forum (someone else, not the aforementioned) who came up with a linguistic construction along such lines.. but I will keep that privy between me and myself.

It's so obvious yet I didn't even see it. At least it makes sense now.
