This Rabbi is a jerk, Christmas trees aren't the same as a stinking Menorah. I'm really tired of this country's diversity being an excuse for a lousy lawsuit. I'm sure Jili/Grump would agree with the grounds for this bullshit but I think the rest of the nation is getting very bored with the asshole lawyers in this country(easily some of the most useless, dishonest twats on the planet). http://www.king5.com/localnews/stories/NW_120906WABxmastreesEL.11b0d0cc.html# Xmas trees removed from Sea-Tac 05:57 PM PST on Saturday, December 9, 2006 By KIM HOLCOMB / KING 5 News No menorah, no tree SEA-TAC Airport - All of the Christmas trees inside the terminal at Sea-Tac have been removed in response to a complaint by a rabbi. A local rabbi wanted to install an 8-foot menorah and have a public lighting ceremony. He threatened to sue if the menorah wasnt put up, and gave a two-day deadline to remove the trees. Sea-Tac public affairs manager Terri-Ann Betancourt said the trees that adorn the Sea-Tac upper and lower levels may not properly represent all cultures. She said that since this is their busiest time of year and they don't have time to add a fair representation of all cultures, her department decided to take down all of the decorations, review their policies, and decide if they need to make a change for next year. "You know, our focus is on customer service, getting our passengers through the airport, and we thought if we could take the trees down and avoid litigation because we don't want to littigate with this individual, we want to reach some kind of solution," Betancourt said. "But that is going to take some thoughtful discussion and we would like to have time to have that thoughtful discussion." Until then, no Christmas decor at Sea-Tac.
