Before coming to this forum, I just finished reading an article in the Wausau Daily Herald entitled "Police Arrest Teen Streaker." When I read the story it turned out the kid was wearing a tan bathing suit or underwear.

I'm just wondering how soon it will be before we start stoning adulterers again?
