Quite a Strage use of GPS

Ran across this on the Fox News website - just had to share it! http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,318028,00.html

Baby Jesus in Florida Nativity Scene Gets GPS After Last Statue's Disappearance

BAL HARBOUR, Fla. — A baby Jesus statue here is getting a Global Positioning System for Christmas.

The statue, part of a nativity scene, will be equipped with the device after the previous statue went missing, even though it had been bolted down.

"I don't anticipate this will ever happen again," said Dina Cellini, who oversees the display, "but we may need to rely on technology to save our savior."

The Mary and Joseph statues will also be fitted with GPS devices, she said.

The devices are being bought using residents' contributions and Cellini's own money.

Cellini has also installed a Plexiglas screen in front of the display.
