Did you know that only this April, Boulder, Colorado, voted to bar teens and adults from showing their genitals in public? Hot on the heels of that new law, the Boulder City Council is set to vote on another, uh, earth-shattering ordinance that would require citizens to wear more than just underwear to address the council. See, back in February, a Boulder resident showed up in his boxer shorts. Since this incident, the council has proposed a ban on "undressing during meetings." [AP]
