I'd Like My Coffee In A Couple Of D Cups, Please

Vassalboro, Maine is the proud home of a new topless coffee shop. That's right, while you're bogarting wi-fi to look for jobs that read "poetry skills a plus", you can get your coffee served to you by a girl (or guy) with no shirt on.

As you might expect in this bastion of freedom and openess (except when it comes to naked boobies), this has caused an uproar in the town, whose city council has said the business meets "the letter of the law" (read: we'll be changing the law soon and not grandfathering anybody).

Personally, I don't see the big deal. This isn't a strip club (the sign on the door says "no cameras, no touching, cash only, which come to think of it, sounds exactly like a strip club, but still). It's a coffee shop. If adults want to be served java by half-naked people, why should anyone else care? The shop doesn't admit minors(*).

What do you think? Is this the sign of America's complete moral decay?
(*) Whether it should is a different question. Short answer: yes. Long answer: yes, but only those accompanied by an adult over 21 to avoid gangs of adolescents visiting the shop just to stare. Full answer: email me.
