This “I’m offended” crap is totally out of control. Many of you are probably offended about many things you see and experience during your day-to-day travels, yet my guess is you don’t go around claiming you have some unwritten right not to be offended. What’s even worse is the fools who buckle to the pressure so quickly.
[T]he letters spelling “Christmas” were removed yesterday afternoon from the archways on the north and west sides of the plaza, at the request of Managing Director Richard Negrin. They will be replaced with the word “Holiday.”
City spokesman Mark McDonald said Negrin asked for the change after the city received complaints from workers and residents.
“As a city of great diversity, one shouldn’t be surprised that there’s a difference of views when it comes to symbols and words,” McDonald said.
Supposedly, the Christmas reference on the sign will be back tomorrow morning after some “reflection” by the mayor.
