There's just one thing i don't get, and it is mentioned herein:
The federal court had said the monument could be in a private place in the building but not the highly visible spot in the rotunda directly across from the building's entrance."A private place in the building", it reads.
I give up. How can there be a "private place" in a "public building"? I mean, there are no private smoking rooms in New York City restaurants, are there? So a privately-owned restaurant in Greenwich Village is totally public, but a courthouse in Alabama has private places.
My Grandmother, what twisted courts you have!
