    If the crosses were on private land, this would be a non-issue. As it stands, I doubt any counter lawsuit would gain any traction.

    I respect the desire to honor fallen state troopers, however it is a little ignorant to assume they were all Christians or even religious. Do we specifically know that these troopers would want a memorial to them to be an expression of religion? Why not choose a badge?

    Look at it another way: have you ever seen the cemeteries of the fallen American Soldiers on Normandy Beach?

    Did anyone ever insist that a Jewish soldier had to be buried under a cross headstone? Would you want to be buried under a Star of David (assuming you are a Christian)?

    Instead of counter-suing (which is a loser case), a rational solution is for someone to donate private land along the highway and move the memorial.

    Instead of going into histrionics over the matter, why not start a fund and organization to buy the land and do such a thing?

    I'd like to see more options than a cross, and also an option for no cross, from here on out that is. But to take them all out.... weird.

    But everyone on the left is going nuts because Obamma's Muslim buddies are getting their chops busted putting up a building in lower Manhattan.If it's a cross,if it's a Nativity scene,if it's one nation under God in the pledge of allegiance in classrooms,if it's wishing someone a Merry Christmas at Christmas well the ACLU and all the Dems will bust you in the ass about it.Muslims,well they get a free pass.Hmmmmm I wonder why?

    Why do you guys not get the concept of public land vs. private land?
