Worst Day Of The Year?

A part-time tutor at Cardiff University has calculated that today (January 24) is the worst day of the year [BBC]. Weather, post Christmas blues, debt, etc. pinpoint today as the worst the misery index has to offer.

Of course if you're a male who enjoys adult entertainment and you live in (or visit) Las Vegas, it most certainly is not the worst day of the year...

LAS VEGAS (AP) - A Las Vegas law prohibiting strippers from fondling customers during lap dances is unconstitutionally vague, a judge ruled.

District Court Judge Sally Loehrer affirmed a lower court ruling that as many as five misdemeanor criminal cases filed against Las Vegas strippers should be dismissed.

Friday's ruling affects only dancers within city limits. The Clark County Commission in 2002 limited touching between strippers and patrons during private lap dances, specifically barring strippers from touching or sitting on the customer's genital area.

...Under Loehrer's ruling, no dancer in the city can be arrested for violating the municipal code.

I'm guessing that patrons won't be paying much attention to the pronouncements of English tutors, unless they also happen to be a lap dancers...

Kevin one has to wonder about what is your real motivation. However, we can't fault you for being a healthy heterosexual!

This is a true victory for the freedom of expression in this land some call "Jesusland".

Lap dancers are some of the true patriots or our time, exercising their constitutional rights on the front lines battling oppression. Have you hugged your local stripper today? Me neither - it's illegal here - but I did give her a dollar!

Word around the block is the strippers here in Los Angeles go pretty darned wild, although I'm sure it's nothing as crazy as the Crazy Horse II.

Now how is a ban on touching or sitting on the customer's genital area, constitutionally vague? Does one not know when one is touching and or sitting on male genitalia? Not quite a compliment to men, I suppose. :p

Julie, I would think that its the wording of the law itself that was vague. Remember the big 'flap-doodle' about Bush's ban on late-term abortions? I disagree with the abortions anyway, but in current terms of legality, some doctors complained that the law itself was worded very vaguely.

It doesn't matter what the law was made to do, it only matters how the law is worded.

I'm taking quotes from the original article that Kevin didn't include:
" But the municipal code was not as specific, saying only that strippers and their patrons should not "fondle" or "caress" each other.

City attorneys told Loehrer touching is illegal when dancers engage in contact aimed at sexually arousing the customer. But defense lawyer James Colin argued the lack of specifics makes it impossible to enforce the law.

"It's too confusing," Colin said. "No one knows." "
