Even one County Board member, Chris Zimmerman, seemed unsure that Rosslyn Spectrum was the appropriate setting for the show.

Even a county board member was unsure about it? Well, when even a low level functionary of the local community has doubts . . . What happened to decency? Why do public funds get spent on this crap? We have the government we deserve.

I know the general counsel for Arlington County and occasionally do work with him. We talked about this, jokingly, a few days ago. It seems that the County actually can't prevent these guys from performing even if they wanted to. Legally, the performance venue is open to any group that meets certain criteria (insurance, fire code etc.). The way the rules are written, they could only forbid someone from performing if they were violating laws, which these guys don't seem to be doing (at least, not according to the Arlington PD). Anyway, no public funds are being expended on this- the County is just leasing space to this group.
