    ordinances against life drawing classes

    There have been several articles on this topic. Most recently was in the L.A. Times entitled "A drawing class -- or adults-only fare?". I've been told Long Beach, parts Santa Monica, and L.A. are implementing these ordinaces.

    "City offices are saying that life drawing classes which charge a fee for service are considered to be adult entertainment. Adult entertainment venues are strictly forbidden without a city permit. Even with proper permits most life drawing classes are closed down because many are in close proximity to residential property which is forbidden by law for business of adult entertainment."

    Okay, there were just 3 ants crawlong on my PC desk. I just slayed them all with an exact-o knife....AKSDHFHF!!! I feel them all over me!!! Great, now I'm going to looking for ants for a week because i found a family of them.

    Anyway, that just shows how stupid the city offices are. "Adult entertainment" is like looking at porno and going to strip clubs. Just because there is nudity involved, doesn't make it "Adult Entertainment". Are movies considered "Adult Entertainment" because some of them show nudity? No, and there are plenty of theaters near residential areas.

    Also, I've never been to a life drawing class, but is it really entertaining?

    The people who decided on that should have their homes searched for pictures of naked babies in their photo albums and then be arrested for posessing child-porn.

    This is truly disturbing.

    ...actually if you read this, you'll see the law will probably be adjusted...

    Hehe, gonna have take those life drawing classes "underground". Out behind seedy bars, maybe hiring "escorts" to pose for a bunch of artists with their sweat-stained sketchbooks full of "contraband" material, always looking around nervously at the sound of distant sirens. God Bless America, and noone else!

    What the--? Are you suggesting that it's liberal to pull a puritanical ashcroft move like classifying art classes as adult fare? Or that it's liberal to object to the ordinance? I actually can't tell what you mean.
