Could be a boon for sun-screen industry

Roanoke attorney Harvey Lutins had this letter published in today's Bristol paper, which concludes:

"Years ago, morality and respect caused our parents, teachers, clergy and mentors to develop some silly notions. For example, marriage was an honored commitment, having a child out of wedlock was shameful, unlawful cohabitation was illegal, taking a holy spirit’s name in vain was sacrilege, and if you said a dirty word to your elders, your mouth might be washed with soap.

There’s another restriction which we have outlived. The prohibition of public nudity must go. If one chooses to walk nude in the warm sunlight on a public street, no one is physically harmed. After all, whose business is it any way? No harm, no foul."
