Nude dancing responsible for all manner of evil

In her April 30 letter, Pamela Parker stated she laughed until she cried about letter writer Audrey Jensen’s comments concerning completely nude performances in bars.

In her April 30 letter, Pamela Parker stated she laughed until she cried about letter writer Audrey Jensen’s comments concerning completely nude performances in bars.

She said that she was surprised that “in her last letter regarding the inclusion of sex education in the schools, that (Jensen) didn’t find a way to include a diatribe on nude dancers.”

The rest of the story might not be so laughable.

Parker has no compunction in making fun of Jensen for looking at the aftermath of nude shows to sell alcohol.

Jensen rightfully includes the resulting cost to society, the jump in crime, jails, marital breakup, job losses, rape, AIDS, prostitution, etc. due to nude dancing — something Parker has no difficulty overlooking.

According to an adage, it’s impossible to attempt to throw dirt on someone without getting dirt on yourself?

I say plaudits to Jensen for having the courage to tell it like it is.
