Now, I've seen worse things in this town than a gaggle of sagging nudists. To wit: public defecation, panhandlers yelling at passers-by and substance abusers who hate themselves so much that they want to foul up the whole neighborhood.

And I think the human body is a beautiful thing -- but not for everybody, not always and not everywhere.

Public nudity involves a lack of privacy so blatant that it invades the privacy of others. It is inappropriate in front of children. It has become a quality-of-life issue -- another in-your-face assault on the city's (there's a reason for this language) social fabric.

Sadly, the city is so paralyzed with political correctness that solons can only go after public nudity when it's unhygienic.
