ACLU Membership

I got my ACLU membership card yesterday. Very exciting.

Maybe it’s just me. I always thought someone saying, “Bob is a card carrying member of the ACLU!” was an accusation, coming from our McCarthy-era past. It’s obviously nothing to be ashamed of–in fact, one should take pride in supporting such an organization. But the phrase was just one of those things people said. It wasn’t a slogan or anything.

But I was wrong. I guess the ACLU takes it to heart. With my membership card, they also sent me a decal that reads: “Card Carrying Member” with the ACLU logo at the bottom.

Anyone else amused by that…?

Ok, just me.
