Why is this a story?
Commandments big as two barn doors
A private citizen (a self-described Biblical scholar; look, my brother Brad is both a preacher/minister and a farmer, so I'm not saying it's beyond the realm of possibility, but you'll forgive me a little healthy skepticism) paints a replica of the Ten Commandments on his barn on his own property, and the Enquirer (by way of the Associated Press) feels the need to print it?
It's not even LOCAL. Dellroy is way up in the northeastern part of the state.
People giving you too much grief over the centrist nature of the editorial page lately? Felt you had to appeal a small, but extremely vocal, constituency?
Every President of the United States, and the overwhelming number of members of Congress, Supreme Court justices and lower court judges, governors, and state legislators, not to mention mayors, city/town/village/borough councilmembers, township trustees, county commissioners/judges, has been a white Christian male. That's not going to change anytime soon. So how come so many so-called "Christians" feel as if they are one step away from being publically fed to lions?

They Get Letters
Third letter down.
Ms. Ruth Wells of Fairfield, how can you write "he responded quickly and appropriately to 9/11" knowing that he sat there, looking like a deer in the headlights, for SEVEN MINUTES? How can you say that knowing we pulled our resources from the hunt for bin Laden (Remember him? The actual mastermind?) for his little quagmire in Iraq?
Do you even actually WATCH or READ anything? Or do you just go with what the nice man on the radio (be it Rush, O'Reilly, Liddy, Medved, Coulter, or Savage) says?
