I suppose the local drycleaners will suffer from this, but I bet working at the drive-tru would be an interesting career choice in this town.

Vermont is a state that has judges on the bench that don't believe in punishing pedophiles. In the future, they will probably let nude couples screw on the sidewalks as long they don't block both lanes.

"Public nudity will be allowed again next month, when the emergency ordinance expires."

Wonder what emergency caused the temporary ordinance????

Will it be o.k. to get "nude" and then go hangout near an elementary school?
It's never the world class super models that want to get naked its the overweight, toothless,saggy, people that GOD intended to wear clothes.

A sunburn epidemic?

Too many old men taking Viagra and then walking the streets?

They painted the park benches and the ordinance lasted just long enough for them to dry?

Too many people were walking around eating snacks that used that fat substitute that causes anal leakage?

It was molting season?

Town ran out of razors?

Should I stop now or keep going?

The mimes there take Viagra and pretend to be sundials.

The disabled who can't use their hands can still point out the sights to the tourists.

The town has something in common with Myrtle Beach, a no thong wearing law.

No one asks "how they hanging".

<quoted text>details are sketchy, but unverified reports say the scene was such a mess fire fighters had to hose it down, washing away most of the evidence, a box of spicy buffalo wings, a bottle of tabasco sauce, and a half eaten jalapeno pepper were found on a nearby park bench, police are unsure of a connection between the two pending dna samples taken from the scene and food found nearby.

Brattleboro is one of my favorite places and has been for years but I have never seen anyone naked in the downtown. I do, however, support the nudity. Anything that goes against the direction our society has been going in for the past seven years is encouraging to me.

I hope that this will all serve as a lesson to the rest of the nation. These people have lived this way and NO ONE was hurt by it. Crime, rape and the like have not gone up just because people are nude.This is some of the propaganda that is perpetuated by those who may oppose nudism in general.Places such as solairrl.org and other nude resorts and beaches have all proven the philosophy that the lifestyle of the naturist/nudist is healthy,safe and a way of life that embraces humanity as a whole. Lets all allow others the peace and harmony to coexist among us without any unnecessary judgement or criticism. Bye-- R.. Torrington Ct.

okay for you then. why don't you come here, get naked and sit on one of our town benches where someone else has just left their ass crumbs and gism drips. and oh yeah, you may want to bring some lysol to get rid of the herpes drops too. yuck. this is so unsanitary.

Obviously snowowl is totally unaware of the fact that the very basic etiquette of the nudist is to sit on towels.Also, what do you mean to say by "ass crumbs" and "herpes drops"??? People at nude resorts are far more clean than anyone else in society because they take a half dozen showers a day,literally.Everywhere they go,the pool,beach,hot tub and back to the pool requires a shower in between... its the Rule. Even if you wear your clothes snowowl, ass crumbs herpes and gism drops should not exist if you are clean-that is digusting! Is this what you think people have in their clothes?? Well, they shouldn't.
