Red, White and Boobs

What could be more American than a Fourth of July parade, complete with marching bands, Boy Scouts, and flag-waving veterans? Why, a topfree bicyclist, of course!

Jen Moss is planning on baring her boobs in the Ashland, Oregon, holiday parade. She will not be breaking any laws, since statutes only require the covering of genitalia in a city park or commercial district. That has not prevented the prude patrol from trying to keep Jen out of the parade.
"We don't feel that someone in the parade who is topless or nearly naked is appropriate for a family audience," said parade chairman James Kidd..."She's welcome on any other day of the year to do that," he said. "But not on the Fourth of July while in the parade."
Not all are opposed to the topfree display.
City Council member Eric Navickas said he's on Moss's side.If she can't be in the parade, Navickas said, it would be "an interesting commentary on our society that we're willing to tolerate dead bodies through our aggressive foreign policy from the war, but not healthy, naked bodies."
Moss says that if she is not allowed in the parade, she will step-up her near naked protests and seek help from the ACLU to protect her civil rights.
