Religion under attack again(or is it still?)

Check out this story over at Volokh. Apparently, the Los Angeles County seal contains a tiny cross representing the history of Catholic missions in the county. The ACLU, of course, wants to have those symbols removed due to the "separation of church and state". No word yet on whether or not the ACLU would have been as zealous to remove a symbol of Islam in the county seal.

Um... isn't LA Spanish for City of the Angels?

Man, THAT'S gotta go...

Actually, it's a much shortened name for the City of Angels. I have to look up the rest.
