The ACLU Grows a Brain

Okay….so I know the title is a little too promising, but they did at least sprout one brain cell:

OMAHA, Neb.The Nebraska chapter of the Americans for Civil Liberties Union told KETV NewsWatch 7 that it will not appeal a ruling to keep the Ten Commandments monument in a Plattsmouth city park.

Okay, so maybe I’m giving them too much credit.  Perhaps it’s not because they are wiser, or have employed a level of common sense.  More than likely they’ve realized the fame and fortune they sought to achieve here dried up.  But I’ll take it.  Any time the ACLU recognizes that they have LOST and CANNOT WIN is a good moment in time.

Update:  Welcome Jawa Report readers!  Thanks for stopping by!

I was born and raised in Plattsmouth. I truly do think they realized that their support of one person, who isn't a lifetime resident of that small town, isn't going to get them anywhere.

Plattsmouth certainly isn't liberal by any stretch of the imagination and they are solidly based in tradition and religion (not to mention as many bars as there are churches, but that's a whole different story..hehehe).

That monument hasn't caused anyone any harm, and it is actually quite beautiful. The ACLU probably figured they were wasting time there, and will more than likely find some other venue in which they are more readily welcomed.

I think you're right, Merri, they're looking for better odds.

Go Plattsmouth!

C'mon Merri! It's NEBRASKA! One of the members must have realized that he's 1500 miles from San Francisco and had a panic attack.
