ACLU is suing Polk County. History: Last Christmas some zealous Sunday School class put up a nativity scene on the county building lawn in the middle of the night after being denied permission. This, of course, sparked some protests by offended parties who had nothing better to do, and so this year apparently the county is designating a "free speech zone" where people can put up whatever they want -- within the guidelines. What I can't figure out is why the ACLU thinks Polk County, Florida is worth all the attention. tbobdole: "I honestly wonder if these people just have nothing to do... They should get a dog or an xbox or something."
