Do you want to smile? Read this from Andy McCarthy

…as we’re off to mass and then my mothers for Christmas Eve as always.

May all of you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Thanks for reading and God Bless you all, every one.

After all this story is dated Dec 23.

A conservative activist and Illinois comptroller candidate was escorted from the Illinois State Capitol building Wednesday when he tried to remove a sign put up by an atheist group.

William J. Kelly announced Tuesday that he planned to take down the sign put up by the Freedom from Religion Foundation, and on Wednesday, he tried to make good on his plan.

The story has this interesting note:

For the second year in a row, the Capitol also has an aluminum Festivus pole commemorating the fictional holiday created in “Seinfeld.”

I guess he can claim to have been acting in the best traditions of Festivus, then again the police that took him away can say the same thing, Feats of Strength you know.
