If lap dances are "Art" what does one call the potential erection? Art criticism?

This whole stupid thing is about taxes. This is why people hate taxes in this country. This is also why the rich pay less in taxes than the poor... because they hire million-dollar attorneys to find all the tax free cracks to squeeze their money into.

@3, taxed or not, I'm sure everyone who already does will continue to find cracks to squeeze their money into.

Since when does anyone at the Stranger like to look at women for any reason?

Wait, so phone books, even for commercial purposes, are art and protected speech, but lap dances are not? /baffle

The court has obviously never seen "Deathproof"

@2: I like to think of mine as a patron of the arts.

How is this not going to be appealed under 1st amendment grounds?

Actually Sanders wrote the dissent in the State Supreme Court decision that upheld Bellevue's ban on lap dances. But I imagine your comment has more to do with Sanders' stance on marriage equality.

No worries however. I'm pretty sure the voters will uphold R-74.
