The Roseville Galleria’s rules are “unconstitutional on their face” when it comes to restricting the rights of patrons–even irritating Christian youth ministers–to freely discuss religion, politics, or anything else, at the mall.
Dang! On their face, Roseville Galleria!
That’s the ruling from state appeals court Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye, just released, in the case of Matthew Snatchko.
Snatchko was arrested back in 2006 when he refused a security guard’s order to stop proselytizing in the mall. (See, One mall under God, SN&R, July 8, 2010.) Snatchko sued, but a Placer County Superior Court ruled that the mall’s owner, Westfield LLC, had a right to impose “reasonable time, place, and manner” restriction on any kind of political or religious speech.
In reversing that decision, Justice Cantil-Sakauye agreed that some regulation is important for public safety, but that “Westfield has not shown its content-based rules are necessary to serve the interest of safety.”
“Oh yeah, that’s in the works. An instrumental album is something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time. I have the ideas for it. I want to call it The Planets. I don’t even know if I should be saying this, but fuck it. [Laughs.] It’s just my interpretation of what each planet sounds like. I’m gonna go off on that. Just all instrumental. I’ve been studying the planets and learning the personalities of each planet. I’ve been doing this for about two years now just in my spare time so to speak. I wanna do it in surround sound. It’ll have to be in surround sound for Saturn to work.”—
Today in “Most awesome fucking thing I’ve heard all day” (though Vaughn Walker could top it): Dr Dre tells Vibe he wants to make an instrumental album about the solar system. I want that too.
He added that after leaving the board in December, he intends continue teaching MBA-level business courses, and to begin work with an education-related non-profit organization. He wouldn’t reveal the name of the group, but said its work is “related to student equity.”
Grimes also said that he wants to explore ways that public schools can be “more sustainable.”
“I think school districts are going to have to understand they they’re going to have to be more competitive,” he told SN&R.
Grimes said he’s “been debating this move for years.”
The competition between MidMo and SN&R is particularly intense. It is rife with corporate espionage and backstabbing. I’m pretty sure Nick Miller is tapping my phones.
This blood feud is not without its lighter side, however. I can’t count the number of times I’ve glued Cosmo’s phone to his desk, or replaced Kel’s review book with a copy of Hustler…
”—Becky reveals the dark side of Sac’s media scene in MidMo’s August issue. Remember the rumble scene in Anchorman? It’s like that. By the way, I was really stoked to try Asian Cafe, but when I got there I found out it was cash only and I was a little light…Which means we’re gonna fight!
