The article reports on the hearing set by the U.S. Supreme Court in fall 2009 in which it will decide what will happen to an 8-foot memorial cross at the Mojave National Preserve in California. It is noted that the cross is a World War I veterans memorial and has stood in the desert for 75 years. It recalls that Congress sought to transfer the site to the Veterans of Foreign Wars in 2004 to address the objections of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) but was rejected by an appeals court.
