About that trip into the future...
So, I know I'm going to hell for bringing this up, but Joel Connelly's Onion-like look into Seattle's future got me thinking, especially this passage:
Magazines with pictures of male torsos were permitted, while the PCP removed publications displaying naked female bodies. It was part of a "Nickels rule" regulating display of the human body. Strip clubs are required to erect Plexiglas screens to separate dancers from patrons. Customers must wear monitoring devices: An electric shock is administered at signs of arousal.
So, if one takes the logic of the disparity in display of male and female images humorously described by Connelly, one would have to assume female patrons at strip clubs would not be monitored in the same way as their male counterparts.
Is this justice?
I'm just saying.

1. Sadly, there is more truth than fiction in this article. 2077? Try 2007.

3. Even Connelly realizes what a cess pool that Seattle has become. He waxes fictional, but what he is covering up is that he believes that Seattle has been co-opted by Leftwingnuts or neocommies.
This was one of Joel Connelly's occasional columns that shines a plausible and merciless light on the doings of our mentally lightweight urban 'rulers'.
Intellectual malfunction seems to be the inevitable result of a political monoculture such as Seattle's, and Connelly has pointed to enough of its foremost stars to form a galaxy.
A sensible electorate would dump them all come next election, but Seattle's self-selecting population doesn't achieve much in the sensibility department. Groupthink is a terrible thing - what ever became of common sense and independent thinking?
