    This is hilarious, but only 'cause I don't live there.

    Reminds me of when they banned bare feet on the boardwalk in Cape May. That didn't last too long...

    Ha!
    "No person clad in bathing attire shall be on the boardwalk or the public sidewalks adjacent thereto."
    I don't know about y'all but I don't wear jack when I'm bathing.

    Here's what I bet happened. She and her husband were eating outdoors, talking about last night's bridge or mahjongg game, on the boardwalk when a group of hot 20-something girls walked by. She got the fire of self-righteous indignation lit upon noticing her hubby's jaw on the ground and the strange guttural sounds emanating from his drooling mouth.....

    Don't dogmatic social conservatives like this NIMBY granny realize they are going to hell?

    only in Asbury Park.... its best to just stay away from that town... if they don't allow bathing suits, I don't think they would like us changing in and out of our wetsuits next to our trucks after surfing...

    social conservatives
    I prefer the term theocratic socialists. Conservatives above all else believe in limited government size and power. So called, social conservatives, by nature of their positions, MUST have much larger government to implement their policies. This is a a liberal/socialist mindset.

    If we tried to enforce all the old laws on the books like this one, it would become painfully obvious how outdated they are. This woman is just trying to get 15 minutes of exposure to her name. Really even if she wanted to enforce it, does she really think Asbury Park of all places has the manpower to enforce it? Wake up please

    "Theocratic Socialists" Mind if I use that? Never thought about it that way, but you're right.

    I know Asbury is trying to clean up the town, but common Asbury... You are far from a squeaky clean image anyway, and that is just stupid.
