So, the White House had a contest in which people could submit their work to be chosen for the cover of this year's White House holiday card. And the image that First Lady Michelle Obama picked as the winner is this lovely image of Bo, the Obamas' dog, standing in the snow on the White House lawn, done by Des Moines, Iowa, artist Larassa Kabel.
Such a great image. Such a great idea to invite people to submit their work. Such a great concept for the cardóBo in the snow. Who couldn't love that?

5. I thought creches on public property were unconstitutional?
If the White House can have one, why can't a state capitol or a city hall? Or maybe I am mistaken, and they can?

7. Nonsense. Who told you that? Creches are completely constitutional, as long as other points of
view/other expressions are allowed under the same process.

6. The White House holiday card could feature a complete nativity scene
with the words "MERRY CHRISTMAS" in big, bold letters across the top -- and Repukes would still find something about the card to whine about. They just can't stay happy.
