I am a little concerned about a recent ruling from Massachusetts' highest court. It ruled Wednesday that it is not illegal to secretly photograph underneath a person's clothing – or “#upskirting.” It did not violate the letter of the law, because the women were not nude. I don’t think the court considered the spirit of the law. I am concerned because of my Scottish ancestry. I own and sometimes wear a kilt. Now that is not a skirt, I know. Apparently, it may legal for woman to use their cellphone to take pictures up my kilt or, upkilting. I don’t think there are any women who would want a picture up my kilt, but you never know. There are hard core Scots who believe that Scottish males should not wear underwear. I am not one of them. I would like to keep my privates private, unless, of course, I plan to run for political office in New York City.
An item in the news said that a bikini clad barista at a coffee shop called “Bottoms Up” was “raising eyebrows.” Raising eyebrows? Come on. Would it be news if it raises only eyebrows?
