One-third want God out of pledge…

I’d be more interested  if the poll  had not been done:   online,  with only 1,000 Americans,  and by the American Humanist Association,  which is staunchly and often stridently anti-religion.

That said,  I’m fully prepared to believe that a third of the country finds religion quite inconvenient,  with its strictures and rules and judgments.   Of course,  liberals like the late Ted Kennedy and the very much alive Nancy Pelosi proclaim their Catholicism while ignoring most of the tenets of their professed faith.    It’s a variant of having your cake and eating it, too.

No one will write a  better piece  on Joan Rivers,  the woman who made us all laugh,  than Peggy Noonan.
