The volunteers who maintain the crosses ran out of space at about 4500 crosses, but they've been updating the number--a whopping 6229 as of last Saturday.

It' a mind-bending number and a shame and probably a disgrace. The United States of America seems to place the value of property and pride above the value of human life.
