Former Columnist and Editorial Writer for the St. Petersburg Times
Pro to the question "Is the ACLU Good for America?"
"...[T]here is some truth to the fact that the ACLU in recent years has allowed liberal policy considerations to distract it occasionally from its defense of individual rights. However, the overwhelming majority of the actual legal work done by its 53 affiliate offices is in support of the Bill of Rights and not some Jerry Brown-like moonbeam agenda."
"Anti-ACLU Campaign Likely to Backfire," St. Petersburg Times, July 4, 1999
