Mount Soledad Cross Closer To Fate Of Bamiyan Buddhas.

The City of San Diego suffered another legal defeat in its fight to keep a cross displayed on top of Mount Soledad. (Here.) Unless the cross is removed by August 1, 2006, the city will have to pay a fine of $5,000 for each day the cross remains. San Diego will lose an historical landmark once the cross is removed. There has been a cross on top of Mount Soledad since 1913; not quite as long as the Sixth Century Buddha statues at Bamiyan in Afghanistan, which the Taliban destroyed in 2001. (Here.) But once the cross is removed the result will be the same.
