    ST PAUL ICONEvery Sunday, THE Ave begins with a story about religion. Sometimes these are quotes from one of the bibles, other times they stories about how religious and anti religious people behave.

My wife and I  fight in the courts to get these preserved and released into the public domain before all the survivors die and can no longer see the pictures from April 1945.
