Zell Miller

What an exquisite surprise! A nice little tribute to Zell Miller, right there at the highway rest stop in Georgia!

As I'm sure you'll recall, Mr. Miller was the senator who in 2004:

cosponsored the Federal Marriage Amendment to the United States Constitution. If it had been ratified, it would have declared that marriage in the United States only consists of the union of a man and a woman, and would have prohibited state and the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriages and same-sex domestic partnerships. On March 11 of that year, he introduced the Broadcast Decency Responsibility and Enforcement Act, that would have created a Council of Decency to advise the Federal Communications Commission on standards of decency in broadcasting. The Council would have consisted of three individuals from the ministry, three broadcast industry representatives, and three school teachers. The money from penalties from obscene, indecent, and profane broadcasts would have been given to faith-based organizations.

How pleasant for Mr. Miller, to be recognized in one's own time.

But he couldn't be on a U.S. postage stamp while alive.

What a misguided soul.

. . . the interesting thing is that his little highway site hadn't any value, as far as I could see. There wasn't any view to speak of. Not even any bathrooms.

C'mon, Zell! Use your influence to at least give us some outhouses!
