John Cole at Balloon Juice shows us something new in Christmas decorations: a cross so luminous that it appears to be, well, on fire. This is the latest and greatest from the American Family Association. This is such a wonderful idea!
The flaming cross is no miniature either: it is five and a half feet tall.
But as John points out, it doesn't seem to have much market appeal in African-American communities.
There used to be a messenger service in the Twin Cities called the "Night Rider." Its owner probably noticed the same lack of enthusiasm in communities of color.
