    ACLU has itself a winner in Arshinkoff 

    Alex Arshinkoff, poster boy for the American Civil Liberties Union? This political season just gets goofier and goofier. But then, consider the source. Arshinkoff, head of the Summit Country Republican Party, previoiusly went to the ludicrous extreme of trying to ignite a United Way boycott because a fundraising scavenger hunt took participants into Kerry-Edwards headquarters to find a piece of local campaign literature.

    Now, Arshinkoff and his wife, Karen, are set to tilt at Hudson's windmills - oops, Hudson would not allow windmills because
    they do not fit the Western Reserve architecture requirements - over a 4-by-8-foot Bush-Cheney campaign sign which Hudson officials say is four times too large and must be removed from the Arshinkoff lawn.

    When the matter is considered Wednesday in Cuyahoga Falls Municipal Court, an ACLU representative will support the Arshinkoff's free-speech rights against the city's attempt to keep Hudson looking Hudsonish. Hudson will lose this one. When an issue brings together Arshinkoff and the ACLU, it has to be a winner. (But one thing, Alex, knock off the poor boy routine - ``it's very expensive to fight City Hall.'' As perhaps the best Republican fundraiser in Ohio, it is likely you could come up with the money to pay your $75-a-day fines and defend your wife's property rights and freedom of speech. Since you're getting ACLU help, please consider making a donation to help the next person who really needs the ACLU.)
