What's the big hoopla in the City during the dog days of summer? Can the City arrest the topless women in Times Square for indecency.

For years, the Naked Cowboy, dressed in nothing but his underwear, hat, and boots and with a guitar, has been posing with tourists in Times Square-causing barely a ripple in the news. This summer the women have joined in on the action posing for photos with tourists in nothing but a thong and a feathered headdress with their bare breasts painted in a patriotic red, white and blue simulation of a bikini top. What a fuss with the Mayor, the Governor, the media, business leaders, politicians, civil rights lawyers, constitutional lawyers, and neighborhood activist all chiming in with their viewpoints on the legality of desnudas in Times Square.
