Good Morning Gentle Readers,
While Olympic Skating Champion Sasha Cohen signed autographs and wished her fans a Merry Christmas, a Riverside, California city official accompanied by a police officer (emphasis mine) ordered a high school choir to stop singing God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen in mid-chorus lest Ms Cohen be offended.
Choir director Staci Della-Rocco said she complied with the request because a policeman told me to stop. I didn't want to have a big old huge scene in front of my kids......
Apparently Ms Cohen was stunned by the news.
We both thought the voices were just lovely, they were doing such a wonderful job, Galina Cohen told Reuters. Christmas carols are part of celebrating the holiday season.
