... settlement also marked the second time the change in state law has cost the city. ...
“A New York appeals court ruled in 1992 that women should be legally allowed to bare their chests just as men are.”
That reminds me of an incident that happened on our jogging trail at the facility I work at before 9/11. Our camp used to be open 24/7 to local civilians who wanted to use the trail. The women liked the added security of running on a lit trail any time of the day and have the camp security guards as visible deterrents to any possible assaults.
One weekend, a woman decide to jog on the trail topless. One of the guards saw her and politely told her to replace her top. The woman said, “If men can run topless, so can I”. So the guard called HER supervisor on the radio. By the time he got there, the woman had already put her top back on. He later quipped, “The one day we have a topless female jogger, and Kathy was the only one to see her topless”.
