Was the check written to "The city of ....." or was it written to "Clerk of courts for .....".
If it's to the city he's off scott free, if it's to the clerk of courts he'd better start praying the ACLU guy/gal knows what the hell he/she is doing with respect to arguing first amendment rights cases.
Mind you I think what he did was great and that this is a BS (to use his words) charge in the first place.
Thank you so much. It's wonderful to find someone who said this sentence properly. Most people would have said "this ACLU guy knows what the hell they're doing." Mixing singular and plural drives me nuts. But then I'm an editor, among other things. Anyway, thanks.
