Heritage Elementary School in Madison, Ala., banished the word “Easter” from this year's annual Easter egg hunt. “We're just trying to make sure we respect and honor everybody's differences.” While trampling on Christians. The ban also applied to the Easter bunny. After all, said Principal Lydia Davenport, “people relate the Easter bunny to religion.” Santa Claus can't be far behind. ... A review of United Nations travel expenses for 2010-11 shows the dictator-loving, human rights-ignoring world body slightly overspent its $72.5 million budget — by half-a-billion dollars. That's right, the U.N. spent $575 million on travel for that period. Reason No. 5,612,947 for Congress to defund the profligacy and send out invitations for the new League of Democracies. ... Surely New York will have to change its nickname from the Empire State to the State of Total Economics Ignorance. Obviously conceding that a higher government-mandated minimum wage would hurt businesses, it decided to stick the increase to taxpayers to the tune of between $20 million and $40 million. Goobernatorial (yes, the spelling is intended) spokesman Rich Azzopardi says the measure is designed to balance the needs of families with business owners looking to grow in a fragile economy. Ah, spoken like a true interventionist announcing the latest intervention to cover up the lie that was the last intervention (to end all interventions, of course).
