Free speech returns to Montgomery and Prince George's parks

The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission has indefinitely suspended a series of rules slammed as unconstitutional by the ACLU. They've also agreed to work together on permanent revisions to the regulations.

Park police will no longer stop someone for holding a campaign sign without a permit, as happened to a volunteer campaigning with Montgomery GOP candidate Robin Ficker on the Fourth of July. The park rule makers also dropped permit requirements for collecting signatures and conducting interviews.

Another satisfying win for the ACLU and civil liberties. Another donation is in order, I think.
