AP claims the Tuesday defeat of an Oklahoma School bond referendum was due to outrage by parents about the suppression of Christmas.
"Voters incensed over a superintendent's decision to remove a Nativity scene from an elementary school Christmas program took out their anger at the ballot box, helping to defeat bond measures worth nearly $11 million."
Wish it were so. In fact, the voters were more probably reacting to my critique of the avaricious and domineering Teacher's Union. Voters do not normally respond to events so quickly. The ridiculous attribution might well be a sign of a new stratagem by the enemies of Christmas.
But Oklahoma does seem to be emerging as a bastion in the War against Christmas. There was a sensible editorial in a local newspaper. The editor, Jeff Hall, deserves applause. (E-mail him).
