    He changed his mind again. He's going to stay in office but seek "spiritual guidance."

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    Ummm..... our Governor General is the Queens representative in Australia. I think she has a few Governors in commonwealth countries. One of them one hell of a heel in the seventies .Remember 'The Dissmal' of an elected government?
    Ive spent time in Maine, it really doesnt surprise me this Governor is from there.

    My word... the governor of Maine is still in office? He didn't retire? The spiritual guidance didn't work its magic?

    He just had another bid to be Man Of The Year.
    Lucas St Clair, whose family acquired the land using the Burt’s Bees fortune, told the Guardian that the governor’s refusal to erect signs was “spiteful and destructive”.

    “It’s one of the most irresponsible things he could do for the region,” St Clair added. “To place signs to show the way to the national monument is a simple thing. It could even be [done with] private money. But he has refused to allow that to happen. It’s a sophomoric and petty way to behave.”

    I guess the "spiritual guidance" he sought didn't help much.
