The Ku Klux Klan can display a cross in front of the Ohio Statehouse in Columbus, following a federal judge's ruling today that doing so creates no appearance that the state is endorsing a religion. The same thing happened last year in Cincinnati, Ohio, where a cross was displayed in December without incident. In a separate battle over a controversial symbol, N.A.A.C.P. executive director Benjamin Chavis and other black leaders on Saturday gave South Carolina an ultimatum to stop flying the Confederate flag atop the statehouse by Labor Day or face a nationwide economic boycott.
