Several, including KARK/Fox 16, noted yesterday that construction has begun on the Ten Commandments monument on the Capitol grounds.

The ACLU has made it clear it intends to sue over the promotion of religion on the Capitol grounds, as it has successfully done elsewhere. It had said the monument would likely have to be put in place first for the lawsuit to proceed. The day draws near.
