As a follow-up on Monday's post regarding a peace symbol wreath and an upset homeowner's association that threatened a fine of up to $1,000 if it wasn't taken down, I'm pleased to offer the following from Truthout.
November 28, 2006 | Bill Trimarco and Lisa Jensen with their symbolic wreath. Last week, they were threatened with fines of $25 a day by their homeowners association until they removed the four-foot wreath shaped like a peace symbol from the front of their house. In its original letter to the couple, the association said some neighbors had found the peace symbol politically "divisive." The fines have been dropped, the three-member board of the association has resigned, and peace signs are multiplying in the town.
I can see where a peace symbol wreath would be an extremely divisive neighborhood gesture during the Christmas season. After all, seems there are some goddamned Christians simply addicted to blowing up people and shit.
