That’ll speech ’em.

Posted By on Wed, Feb 20, 2008 at 6:31 PM


Seems the stuffy old TriMet folks -- you know (or perhaps you don’t), the Tri-County Metropolitan Transportation District of Oregon -- have refused to let the Karuk Tribe run a decidedly anti-Klamath-dams ad on their public buses. So today the Karuk, ACLU and Friends of the River turned around and slapped TriMet with a free speech lawsuit.

TriMet’s Advertising Standards Committee (indeed, everyone should have one of those) said the Karuk’s message -- above -- was not an ad but, rather, some sort of pesky political blather about some pesky public issue that they didn’t want intruding upon the pleasant apolitical thoughts of their ridership. Or something like that.
