Raiders of the Lost Cranston Prayer Banner

Peter Sagal of NPR's Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me is working on a documentary about the United States Constitution for PBS, and it will feature Jessica Ahlquist and the Cranston West prayer banner case prominently. Apparently he and his camera crew were allowed into the top secret location where the prayer banner has been stored for the past few months and Sagal leaked this photo on Twitter yesterday:

Here's a screen grab of Sagal's original tweet:

Long time readers and those who followed this issue might remember the ridiculous press conference held by Ray Votto explaining the process of removing the entire section of wall the prayer banner was affixed to and then securing it in a secret, safe location. I was at that press conference, and joined with other reporters in photographing a large blank wall. It was dada-esque.


  1. I find it hysterical that they're treating this chunk of wall like some sacred, ancient relic.

  2. A prayer banner has been on display inside Cranston West High School since the 1960s. Group seeks to reopen Cranston prayer banner case. pray for jerusalem
