Sign language connects those who cannot hear with those have a message to share. In Fairlawn and Kent, another
sort of sign language could make a connection between presidential candidates and those who are influenced by
pieces of cardboard.
Both cities, however, have ordinance that control free speech, a sure court loser and that is exactly where
the American Civil Liberties Union will take these cities if they do not cease and desist their limitations on political signs.
Fairlawn bands political yard signs prior to 45 days before an election. Kent sets the limit at 30 days.
Both are stupid rules. Change them - NOW!
Ohioblog things it is his right to erect a yard sign for the candidate of his choice anytime he chooses. Hey,
it is Ohioblog's yard, right?
Ohioblog is ready to put up a sign right now: Hillary and Obama in '08. Try and stop me.
