Who will pay the property taxes

If private shopping centers are declared to be “public spaces”?

Richard C. Collins argued yesterday that shopping centers have become public squares and asked a judge to overturn his trespassing conviction for distributing leaflets at a strip mall.

The ACLU has contended that shopping centers have replaced traditional town centers, especially in the suburbs, as places where the public congregates and that public speech, including political campaigning, should be allowed at private shopping centers under the state’s constitution.

Equally fascinating is how the ACLU and the Rutherford Institute have teamed up.

I wrote about this last year here and here. Looking back, I hope my writing has improved since then. 🙂

Cvillenews had at least two stories (with great comments) last year as well.
