Humor at General Convention: "Bridgegate" decorates Newark deputation's stanchion

Bishop Mark Beckwith is amused by the "Bridgegate" decoration

The tradition at General Convention is to decorate the stanchion (the pole that indicates your diocese) in some way that represents your location. Our deputation racked our brains trying to figure out what we are going to use to say "Newark is here!!!" And behold... our fabulous "Bridgegate" created by Cynthia Black.

As you can see, there is an enormous pile up trying to get into the George Washington Bridge, which sits afixed at the top. A police car sits under the arch. We love it (though we didn't love it then, did we).
