Nude dancing is not a right

Speaking of faulty applications of the First Amendment, the owners of a proposed strip club are suing the city of Angola, alleging their free speech and due process rights were violated when permits were delayed until a new city ordinance restricting sexually oriented businesses took effect.

A violation of due process, maybe – the club was treated differently from other businesses, and the city didn’t exactly play by the rules. But, please, give the free speech claims a rest. The founders were passionate about unfettered political speech, and we doubt they gave nude dancing much of a thought.
