The Nativity Story: Episode IV

By Shawn Healy
The Mayor's Office of Special Events finally conceded in the ridiculous battle over the screening of "The Nativty Story" at Christkindlmarket on Daley Plaza in Chicago. They turned down the $12,000 offer initially for three separate reasons: 1) the film might offend non-Christians; 2) its blatant commercial message; and 3) pedestrian safety. I commented upon the screening's constitutionality in an earlier posting, and congratulate the city for finally getting it right, just in time for Christmas.
