    Why ban thongs? If they show over a pair of jeans, they are called whale tails because that is what they look like. What better place for a whale than a pool? Another thing, many here are complaining about how bad those with bad bodies look in bikinis. But nothing is grosser than a fat man with an apron of fat hanging over his swimming trunks (that's what they called mens swimming suits in the olden days). I've been to Kanab and there are guys like that there. I say, "Let it go Kanab City Council." If you can wear it while tanning on your front lawn, allow it at the pool. Some of us old guys can overlook a little pot belly on a beautiful woman.

    Hey! Leave Doug alone. I think that he does a good job writing. Besides, we need humor in the newspaper at times to lighten the mood of the doom and gloom news that we get every day. Doug does the serious stuff too. He does a good job doing serious stuff and tongue in your cheek humor as well as out right humor in his articles. So keep up the good work Doug! By the way I got a chuckle out of this article. It is amazing what people do in differnt places of this world. You just have to shake your head and wonder what they were doing when they do these things or what they were on. *Grins*

    Robinson, write about something that matters. What a waste of time. Don't you have something better to whine about?

    All of the critics of the Kanab City Council should run for office - oh, but then they would have to represent what the majority of the people want here in Kanab. Kanab is a family friendly community and welcomes all to come and enjoy our beautiful town. We even have a beautiful new state of the art swimming pool that most small towns dream of. That City Council better watch out, or the great things they are doing for Kanab just might leak out - but probably not through the press. As we all know good news is no news at all.

    How blind some wearers of skimpy suits are! What they're displaying is not attractive, but gross. . .Puffy tummies, love handles, dimpled derriers, leather-like (tanned) skin, and, occasionally, stretch marks! BobG is right. . . sit by the pool and get a good show --- of the inability of some people to see themselves as they really are and their misguided belief that the rest of us enjoy seeing all their bodily imperfections! (At least have the courtesy to keep covered until I've had my lunch!)

    Although many young girls are disallousioned about their looks in a G-String some are calling a bikini, the fact is most are unsightly and exposing more than you want to see. I don't think comfort has anything to do with a G-String, they all look like they hurt to wear them. I'm not against nudity or the human body but there should be some kind of self awarness about their looks and what it does to hormonally charged males. Having spent time in Europe and seeing their views on nudity it still wasn't publicly displayed all over the streets, they kept it open and modest with some respectability. The G-String has moved from the bars to the pools and public viewing now so who needs to waste the dollars stuffing them in the G-Strings at bars anymore? Just sit by the pool and get a good show. Then these sex goddess wonder why there is so much sex predation as they display all their assests. Books are banned, bars are banned, yet public is okay. Maybe we should ban swim suits all together and eliminate any questions or concerns about modesty. Think of the money exhibitionist and swimmers could save.
