Regarding the Feb. 18 Metro article "Ten Commandments in school stirs fight in Va. district":

I thought that we had just entered a golden age of constitutionally limited government. Yet again, "limited" means "limited to whatever those in power like." Also, it is ironic that so many people have made an idol of a list of rules, one of which forbids idolatry.
