In a bold, politically charged move that may incite protests and charges of discrimination, Huntington Beach plans to host its annual Easter Hunt on Saturday.
That's right, Easter Hunt. Not Spring Hunt or Community Hunt or any other term that prudently avoids slighting any segment of the population. Easter is on the calendar this weekend, and at the risk of an American Civil Liberties Union lawsuit, it's back in Surf City as well.
Without delving too far into my political or religious beliefs, I'll confess that I'm a pretty liberal fellow. I'd be happy to see that Confederate flag removed from the South Carolina capitol. I don't credit Columbus with discovering America. I always get annoyed when I see a female head of a commission with a nameplate that reads "chairman."
Still, even I have my limit with political correctness. And I reached that limit again when a Facebook friend posted an article about a Seattle school that officially banned the term "Easter egg."
