I’m no fan of strip clubs, but…

Town ‘sneakily’ buys out disgraceful strip-club. The only thing that is disgraceful is the $250 million that a former commissioner of a nearby county profited from it. The lawyer for the estate states, “They helped pay my mortgage. We would have sold it to them in a heartbeat – their money spends the same as anyone else’s does.”

“We’re in the Bible Belt,” says Ron Walters, the owner of a downtown flower shop. “You just don’t do things like that here.”

Wait just one second. Isn’t Bible Belt an insult? He could be using the same way poor kids who liked dirty, fast rock music used the term punk (which was originally more like the way we use fag) to describe themselves.

The strip-club owner duped them, this is true. I would have been upset too, I suppose. That’s not my real problem with this article. My problem is that they had to dupe the city council in order to open their business.

The fact that the local government can regulate business arbitrarily, and justify their decisions with religious morals stuns me. I’ve blogged about the X-mart war that’s going on here in Augusta before.

There’s something about Palin here, too, probably. I’m too buzzed to try.
