The proposed topless beach in Asbury Park has made world wide news. Nothing makes headlines like mammaries.
The Asbury Park council is set to vote on an ordinance that would permit topless bathing at the city's 8th Street beach at their July 7th meeting.
The idea has been championed as a women's equal rights issue by Reggie Flimlin, owner of the Yoga Basin. If nothing else, Flimlin has generated a great deal of publicity for Asbury Park and her business.
So what do you think?
If the ordinance passes, Tommy DeSeno wants to write an article about it for MMM.
The Asbury Park Press editorial board thinks an ordinance is unnecessary, and that the police should just... uh hum....look the other way.
Dan Jacobson of the triCityNews is said to favor the idea. Mickey Gooch hopes it passes so that Dan will stay out of Rumson.
Here's a video of Tommy and Dan with an unknown accomplice during their youth:
What do you think? Is this an equal rights issue for women? Publicity stunt? Would it be good for Asbury Park? For Monmouth County? Will Tillie and his grin resurface?

"More Monmouth Musings is a must-read. Art Gallagher skillfully covers local, state and national affairs and his blog is a definite stop on the daily news round up. A respected conservative, Art knows when to question conventional wisdom and his guest commentators provide an array of opinions on everything from the State House to the school board." ~ Senator Joe Kyrillos

"MMM is a great source of insider gossip and news in the conservative wing of the Republican Party and the Tea Party. I don’t agree with everything I read, but I keep taking a look- it is definitely entertaining. However, MMM would be better and could have far greater credibility if Art Gallagher didn’t display his biases quite so obviously and ran an unbiased forum for discussion.
