Oh, For Goodness Sake...

The US Supreme Court will decide on Jan. 9 whether to hear a suit brought by a Muslim convert against the State of Mississippi. Apparently the man is offended by the Confederate Battle Flag in the state flag; his argument according to the AP is "that the Mississippi flag contains the St. Andrew's Cross and that the symbol represents state endorsement of a particular religion." Plus, he's seeking up to $77 million in damages and wants to forbid the display of it from public places.

Excuse me while I let out a long sigh of exasperation. Ya know, I really getting tired of these nonsense lawsuits.
