Alex, Things I’m Not Mad About for $1000
But two news items crossed my inbox, and the first thing that came to mind was, “I ain’t mad.”
The town of Dublin, Georgia, is putting saggy, baggy pants in the category of indecent exposure, with violators facing fines of up to $200.
Dublin Mayor Phil Best said he plans to sign this week an amendment to the municipality’s indecent exposure ordinance. The amendment, which Best plans to put into immediate effect at the City Council meeting, prohibits the wearing of pants or skirts “more than three inches below the top of the hips exposing the skin or undergarments.”
“We’ve gotten several complaints from citizens saying the folks with britches down below their buttocks was offensive, and wasn’t there something we could do about it,” Best said.
Exhibit B: Craigslist ‘adult services’ ads disappear
Embattled online classified service Craigslist apparently made a change to its website early Saturday, censoring its adult services section.
The section that usually reads “adult services” was replaced by the word “censored.”
It was not immediately clear whether Craigslist removed the adult services and replaced them with the “censored” section that had a link that was not active. But for users who accessed the account outside the U.S., the erotic services link was still active.
The website has been under fire for allegations that it promotes prostitution and sexual exploitation of children.
I cringe at the thought of what Google ads will show up with this post!
