    Can we reintroduce those laws?

    Knowing some modern law enforcement “bikini inspectors”*, they’re all perverts.

    *In New York State, it is legal for women to go topless. Equal rights with men and all that. I live on a lake that is a popular vacation area in the summer. I know some officers of the Sheriff’s marine patrol. Mostly they enforce boating rules, but they do cruise around and watch the shoreline with their high power binoculars. They hope to spot attractive females. When they do, the check for a top. If missing, they’ll move in closer, just to make sure a bottom is present, don’t you know.

    OK, that’s odd. My post came up with an avatar that I did not create. (I’m more the non-avatar type person.)

    And now it is gone. Weird.
