It may be my set up, but I am not getting the display of twisted letters that is used to stop spam bots on Blogger comments.  There is only the text “Visual verification” appearing where the graphic should be.

Sorry, Cat Daddy, and Karen, I’ll try later.

The headline says: Truce declared in peace wreath battle.

DENVER, Colorado (AP) — A subdivision has withdrawn its threat of $25 daily fines against a homeowner who put a Christmas wreath shaped like a peace sign on the front of her home.

Homeowner Lisa Jensen told The Associated Press on Monday that the board of directors of the Loma Linda Homeowners Association had apologized, called the incident a misunderstanding and had withdrawn its request for the wreath’s removal.

The Homeowners Association went for the Emily Litella defense, when it became obvious that Ms. Jensen was getting a lot of offers of assistance, including some from people with letters like Esq. LLB, LLD, and JD after their name.

There has been a mini blogswarm on the story, so it wasn’t going to disappear, and, apparently, the board was getting calls.

Technically, we wouldn’t call this a truce in the military, we would call it “run away!”
