Fisher sounds off about crosses and sharks

Prince Frederick, MD - An appeals court ruled that a memorial in Bladensburg is unconstitutional because it is shaped like a cross. The Peace Cross is a World War I Veterans Memorial dedicated to 49 Prince George's servicemen who perished in World War I.  The monument is 92 years old. The ruling has profound implications for buildings and monuments throughout the United States.  As an example, the words Laus Deo (meaning Praise Be to God) are etched into the Washington Monument. Should it be removed? Moreover, inscribed on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier are the words, "Here Rests In Honored Glory An American Soldier Known But To God."  Should this be removed as well?  Governor Hogan said - "Enough is enough!" I agree with the governor.
