    to fight for their trademark in court (as Governors of all stripes make their livings deciding how to spend money), it's how long they're willing to have the facts of the billboard publicized beyond the meager reach of a handful of billboards by media reports of the lawsuit.

    I don't doubt that the trademark will ultimately be enforced. But every moment until it is is a win. And even after that order comes down, MoveOn gets to play the 1st Amendment card (think the replacement billboards stating "Censored By Order Of Governor Jindal") and continue to publicize their point that the Repugs commitment to "life" ends at birth, especially for the poor.

    We build on foundations we did not lay. We warm ourselves by fires we did not light. We sit in the shade of trees we did not plant... We are ever bound in community.-Peter Raible
