That didn’t take long…

Two days ago I wrote about how the state of New Jersey refused American Atheists President David Silverman his ATHE1ST vanity license plate on the grounds that it was offensive.  Here you can see a copy of the rejection letter and Silverman’s appeal letter.

I just received a press release from American Atheists with an update.   From the release:

A reporter early Wednesday afternoon contacted Silverman to tell him that his application had been approved, and soon afterward a spokesperson from the Commission called to confirm it.

That was, at most, 24 hours after Silverman submitted his letter.  It’s amazing how fast bureaucracy can work with sufficient motivation, ain’t it?  :)
