Utah losens up- a bit

In search for personal satisfaction, stupidity on June 12, 2008 by Editor Z


The culturally conservative and overwhelmingly Mormon state has loosened up a bit and decided to join the 21st century, even to join the 20th century. A Utah city has voted to revise a ban on bikinis. However thongs and string bikinis are still a no no.

Salt Lake City Tribune:

KANAB – City leaders here have a new message for bikini wearers: C’mon in, the water’s fine.
Less than a month after publishing a ban on bikinis, Kanab’s City Council is poised to modify the rule to permit the popular two-piece swimsuits and Speedos at the city’s soon-to-open public pool.
City Councilwoman Nina Laycook said Tuesday the bikini-Speedo prohibition was unintentional and will be revised probably at their June 24 meeting to line up with other public pools in Utah.
“My recommendation is going to be no thongs or string bikinis,” Laycook said.
The councilwoman said the original dress code – cribbed from the southern Utah city’s parks and recreation policy manual – was an oversight.
“We were so engrossed with safety and health issues we overlooked the wording [about swimming attire],” she said. “We are addressing that now by amending the policy.”

Now that is better. Common sense and freedom prevails again.


Not to mention, Jessica Alba prevails again.

Digg!
