Article: Update to 'Peace on Earth'

Well...perhaps the world isn't as insane as I thought. Apparently, the neighborhood HOA that was fining that woman (mentioned a few posts ago) for putting up an Xmas wreath shaped like a peace symbol started receiving a lot of complaints from complete strangers who were not happy with their decision. They have since repealled the fine and apologized, stating that it was a "misunderstanding".

Question....what was misunderstood?? Why couldn't they just say something like "We have changed our minds" or something else a little more truthful? Why is it that just about everything today is a "misunderstanding"?

"Our invasion of SeaLand was a misunderstanding"
"I called Senator what's-his-hame a 'loser' on camera, but that was just a misunderstanding"
"I murdered my kids with a butcher knife, but it was just a huge misunderstanding"

Wow. I'm impressed with my ability to turn good news into a complaint. :)

They really meant to say, "It was a misunderstanding. We didn't know that our actions would cause all sorts of bad publicity."

I had a weird dream about cylons last night.

It was really weird. I dreamt that a team of cylons (the mechanical ones...not the flesh 'n bone ones) landed in a ship and tried to capture me and the others in the groups I was in. It was easy to evade them the first time. The second time they attempted it, it was a little more difficult, and then a little more. This went on until they learned enough about our tactics that they could catch all of us.

Weird.
