Sorry we missed this story in our own backyard yesterday: “City hall evicts Easter bunny.” As reported in the St. Paul Pioneer Press story: “A toy rabbit decorating the entrance of the St. Paul City Council offices went hop-hop-hoppin’ on down the bunny trail Wednesday after the city’s human rights director said non-Christians might be offended by it.” Jay Nordlinger takes note in today’s Impromptus:
Just one comment: human-rights director? This is what Tyrone Terrill is, the human-rights director? Odd — I thought I wrote about human rights when I wrote about the torture of innocents in dungeons and so on. Little did I know that the real human-rights action is…in City Hall, where a secretary displays pastel-colored eggs.
Will the city’s name survive this test?
PS: We do know the bunny is not a Christian symbol. The name of my beloved hometown, on the other hand…
