Dressed down

A Boulder, Colo., city council proposal that would, among other things, prohibit people from stripping while addressing the council was decried by a local ACLU chapter that said the decorum rules would have a chilling effect on free speech. The city council was forced to consider the measure after a frequent critic of the council addressed the members during public comment as he took off his clothes. When he finished his commentary, he was wearing only his boxer shorts. The decorum measure would ban the public from addressing the council while stripping, wearing masks, or otherwise being contemptuous.
