Patricia Calhoun's post about the annual protest stirred by the Nativity Scene at Denver's City & County Building prompted a funny comment from one reader, who likens the display to a certain Chevy Chase movie -- one also referenced last week in our post about resident Alek Komarnitsky web-controlled display.

We live in the area and every time we walk by it reminds us of the Griswald's ticky tacky home in the Chevy Chase movie "Christmas Vacation." I wonder how soon it will be before Hickenlooper creates a matching Christmas display at the State House. Civic Center Park will then become a wonderful place to see crass consumerism and tacky Christmas displays.
