Los Angeles City Council passed a measure requiring dancers to stay at least 6 feet away from customers, thus ending lap dancing in the city.OK. I get that. They say they don't want lap dancing. I guess that's their business. But here's the part of the story that got my attention:
The ordinance, passed unanimously despite stiff opposition from strippers and adult club owners who fear for their livelihood, banned lap dancing and any other kind of bodily contact between dancers and customers in strip clubs, bikini bars and adult bookstores.
the new law, which must be signed by Los Angeles Mayor James Hahn before going into effect, requires state-licensed security guards to be on duty at all times.So what you're telling me is that the city is going to hire people to hang out and watch all of the strippers in the city? All the time? That's their job?
Is it just my suspicious nature, or do you think that money from the security guard union might be behind this ordinance?Posted by James at September 17, 2003 12:00 PM
