Re: “Ambush at Channel 5: One TV type gets a dose of her own hidden-camera-style investigation and finds it "uncool"

Next, would you interrupt Katie Horner's weather cast with entertainment programming?

Wow, you guys are real dickheads. I hope Channel 5 ambushes you for putting out a trashy rag.

Re: “Bare Biker Gets Busted

What is wrong with sunbathing, swimming or gardening with no clothes on if you want to. You are after all not showing anything which could not be imagined or is not natural. Being without clothes is relaxing, liberating and only offensive if overtly sexual. There is a growing point of view that people should be allowed to clothes free on the beaches, in the pool, their own gardens and in secluded areas within parks and the countryside. In more open societies where nudity is regarded simply as an alternative mode of dress there are fewer sexual problems and far fwer unwanted pregnancies.

If you find nudity offensive for its own sake ask yourself WHY. Those of us who happen to enjoy being clothes free accept that others prefer to be clothed. In the UK you are expected to wear a swimsuit in the Sauna or Steamroom, a ridiculous idea to many other Europeans. The Scandinavians have been open minded and civilised for years.

Most people these days are surprisingly unfazed by public nudity, even if they're not naturists themselves. I've been actively campaigning for an officially approved naturist beach in the area where I live (Margate in Kent), and the press/council have been finding it difficult to find people who are against us (and even then they're generally supportive of a private naturist area). Some of the press regarding this campaign can be seen here: http://www.naturistspace.org.

Re: “The Idiot Son: A Board Game

This sickens me that a Son of an elected Official makes a game called "Don't Drop the Soap".
Prison rape happens all the time and it affects anyone who gets raped. I think this is downright wrong and it sells for over 34.00?? Crazy people would buy this game!
Drugs are in prisons and they often come in by the workers of the prison, rape occurs and I heard 2 Prison guards laughing saying "yeah they are in here so they deserve it", I was appaulled! If our Prisoners get random UA's maybe it's time for the guards to as well.
Stop the Madness!

Re: “UnSimplifying Kansas City's Smoking Ban

Just released research by Federal Reserve economist Dr. Michael Pakko
shows the true business costs of smoking bans. This research shows that
smoking bans do hurt certain types of business. Dr. Pakko urges lawmakers
not to adopt "a Pollyannaish outlook in which communities can achieve
public health benefits with no economic consequences."

Re: “Bare Biker Gets Busted

I'm not a lawyer, but how was Mr. Grimm exposing his genitals if he was wearing a tube sock over them? Sounds like a case of overzealous cops to me. If nudity was the issue, then ALL the riders should have been arrested, or cited. It was the World Naked Bike Ride, after all.

Re: “Bare Biker Gets Busted

It is pretty pathetic when police knock a guy off a bicycle for no other reason than the fact that he is nude, or nearly so. This is a classic example of a victimless crime. It is also, unfortunately, an example of what happens when someone tries to cater to the neurotic idea that there is something wrong with nudity: A tube sock? Gad, that's not even sexy; that's just obscene.

This is supposed to be a free country, and in a free country one cannot be prosecuted for the choices of another. Sure, many people who have something better to do than think are offended by nudity. Many others are not. Clearly, being offended is a personal choice, and people have a right to make that choice, but no one should be required to cater to that choice as a matter of law.

Nudity is not obscene and should not be offensive. A six hundred dollar fine for being nude as an exercise of freedom of expression is obscene and offends every standard of liberty our nation was founded to protect.
