hmmmm - might be something to get for our school. A parent had arranged a
visit from a group of Tibetan Monks - they were supposed to come last week.
But a parent threatened a lawsuit if the school didn't cancel ("we are
Christians and there is only one Jesus and one way to Heaven") - anyone else
have this experience? They moved it to after school, and had a large turn

Next we won't be able to celebrate Arbor Day (we are a Tree City USA mind
you - can't even dig a trench deeper than 4" without the city engineer's
okay) - because it will be seen as a Druid celebration -
