Cleveland, OH - The state of Ohio is on the rocks economically, its big cities hemorrhaging jobs and its mostly over-taxed citizens fleeing to other more obliging places to live.
But instead of doing anything that would address that situation, our state legislature is working instead to shut down strip clubs. That's right, sitting high on the state government agenda is a bill that would impose a 6-foot barrier between strip tease artists and their patrons. The law would also force these places to halt any nude dancing after midnight. The Ohio House has already passed this piece of legislative absurdity and the Senate may approve it next week. The governor will probably sign it.
