Seattle is cracking down on naked bike riders. (Another of life's little pleasures, spoilt by a meddling bureaucracy!)
It happened Sunday - 3 of 57 nekkid riders, including a woman wearing only tiger stripes, were arrested in Seward Park in Seattle over the weekend.
It was a protest ride (what else?) - "aimed at raising awareness of how 'exposed' people are to pollution." Sounds like a stretch to me.
My favorite paragraph from the article:
[Organizer Daniel] Johnson said he believes the arrests were made in part because the Seattle Parks and Recreation Department is trying to discourage events that include nudity, a charge the department denies.
By contrast, the fuddy-duddys who run the BOISE Parks Department still discourage nudity.
As I see it, the problem with public nudity is... the people who should get naked, don't, and the people who shouldn't get naked, do!
