ISKC v. City of Los Angeles (9th Cir. - June 9, 2008)

The Ninth Circuit wants to know if LAX is a public forum under the California Constitution. So asks the California Supreme Court to let it know. Which makes sense.

I mention the case primarily becuase it involves the Krishnas soliciting funds at LAX. Which reminded me of that scene in Airplane! in which Ted Striker struggles his way through a variety of people (including Krishnas) as he attempts to catch Elaine's flight. Classic. And up for grabs, apparently, in the present case.

Parenthetically, I loved Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's involvement in that film. Including his wonderful lines when the little kid visits the cockpit and keeps insisting that he's Kareem instead of "Roger Murdock". Lines that are especially timely since the Lakers are, yet again, in the playoffs.

Life imitates art which imitates life.
