ABSTRACT
The article discusses the case Reed v. Town of Gilbert, Arizona which concerns the regulation of signs by a town government, and requires the Supreme Court to resolve. The case raises question about the basic principle of modern First Amendment doctrine, the distinction between content-based and content-neutral laws. The author argue that the lower court's decision to finding Gilbert's ordinance content-based was based on subterranean discontent with the basic principle of free speech doctrine.
