On Friday the 13th the Federal Second Circuit Court of Appeals reversed a lower court’s decision that stood in the way of Congress’s move to end government funding for the Association of Community Organizers for Reform now, acronymed for the oak tree nut, ACORN. In their appeal, ACORN pleaded that such a decision would be “a corporate death sentence”. Let us hope they were right.
It is now 2 days after the decision. Googling “New York Times, ACORN loses appeal” brings up nothing from the Times, nor did other variations of search. Perhaps the editors are all tied up in a memorial service.
