From the AP wire: No Nativity in Washington , D.C. this year! There will be no Nativity Scene in Washington this year! The Supreme Court has ruled that there cannot be a Nativity Scene in the United States' Capital this Christmas season. This isn't for any religious reason. They simply have not been able to find Three Wise Men in the Nation's Capitol. Also, a search for a Virgin continues. There was no problem, however, finding enough jack asses to fill the stable.
