Re: “Shock and Awe: Naked Girls Reading Friday at Delinquent Debutantes

Ask the Metro Council that was in office during 1997. That body determined that any business that regularly features nudity "for observation by patrons therein" requires a sexually oriented business license.

I don't claim that it makes sense.

Re: “Shock and Awe: Naked Girls Reading Friday at Delinquent Debutantes

For those who are irony challenged, I was using this example -- political speech of apparent literary value, to which nudity is incidental -- to illustrate how the licensing ordinance bears a very tenuous relation to the purposes that the Metro Council blathered about when it enacted the ordinance seventeen years ago. The courthouse mural -- literally within sight of the entrance to the Council chamber -- is another such example.

Keep it classy, tittysprinkles.

I have been involved in contesting that silly licensing ordinance since it was first enacted in 1997, as well as representing accused persons in numerous administrative proceedings regarding licensure. There is no stronger supporter of the right to bare arms (or whatever other body parts one wishes to bare) than I.

Where does your vitriol come from? Are you Chris Ferrell, by any chance?

Re: “Shock and Awe: Naked Girls Reading Friday at Delinquent Debutantes

Does this establishment have a Sexually Oriented Business license? Do the women have permits issued by the licensing board?

For that matter, I have long contended that the Metropolitan Government itself, as operator of the Metropolitan Courthouse (with its much larger than life mural of a bare breasted woman on the west wall of the lobby), violates its own licensing ordinance by operating without an S.O.B. license.

(The licensing board was originally named the Adult-Oriented Establishment Licensing Board, but Chris Falwell, er, Ferrell, and his colleagues on the Metro Council decided to substitute a childish acronym.)

Republicans fear high voter turnout like a slab of baloney fears the slicer.

Re: “House Candidate Bill Beck's Residency Challenged Again ... And Again

Standing ordinarily requires that a plaintiff plead and prove an injury in fact -- distinct from that of the public in general -- for which the court is able to grant a remedy.

In the context of an ineligible candidate appearing on the ballot, courts have recognized standing of an opposing candidate and of an election commission. I am unaware of other claims of standing being recognized.
