Back in the mid-1980s, when I was on the City Council and teaching school in Moreno Valley California, the Air Force flew me and other worthies to Colorado Springs, Colorado for a VIP tour of the Air Force Academy. Quite a place. Quite a
curriculum. Impressive cadets. Especially impressive was the ultra-ultra-modern Air Force Chapel. I thought the chapel architecture so strange that cadets might wonder whether to pray “in it, at it, or for it.”

Now, according to the Associated Press, “strange” at the Air Force Academy has been elevated to a whole new level (but what do I know - I was an Aviation Cadet, not an Academy Cadet). The Air Force Academy has now set aside and designated a “special place” on the campus where Wiccans (witches, in case you didn’t know), Druids, and assorted Pagans can do what Wiccans, Druids, and assorted Pagans do. Wow! “Off we go into the wild blue yonder.” Or is it wild “black” yonder?

Since the academy superintendent three star general is navigating at Mach III speed to new levels of on-campus religious tolerance, let’s do it right, or not at all. To be fair, the superintendent should build a pyramid on campus that will enable Air Force Academy Aztecs believers to do what Aztecs do on top of pyramids. One must’nt discriminate against Aztecs. I’ve heard they can get quite nasty.
