Washington State ends 'holiday' display mayhem in its capitol

Washington state officials placed a moratorium late Friday on permitting any more holiday displays inside the Capitol this year. An atheists' sign placed near a Nativity scene sparked a controversy that led to a variety of groups insisting they, too, should be allowed displays. The governor's office ended the fray after a Kansas church asked to post a sign saying "Santa Claus will take you to Hell."
