On Monday, Mike Fagan passed around a list of anatomical definitions to members of the city’s Public Safety Committee, including fellow Spokane City Council members, the police chief and the police ombudsman. The words on the list – “perineum,” “areola” and “anal cleft” – were meant to help the committee understand Fagan’s latest ordinance, a push to crack down on so-called bikini baristas. The proposed ordinance, Fagan said, gives the owners of the stands a choice: “You move your business to a certain zone, or you put more clothes on.” “I’m OK with bikinis. I’m OK with lingerie,” said Fagan, a libertarian. “But when it comes to pasties and G-strings, in regards to safety, what’s going on is a little overboard”/Nicholas Deshais, SR. More here.

Question: Do you agree/disagree with attempt by Councilman Fagan to force Spokane bikini bars to cover up more?
