Overnight Open Thread (genghis)

Is it safe to turn the t.v. on yet? No?

Well, at least we know that in Reading, OH (presumably a suburb of Cincinnati) a blow has been struck for freedom. The freedom to put a scantily-clad, busty mannequin in front of your BBQ restaurant that is. From the Cincinnati Enquirer:

”READING – BarBe Q, the shapely mannequin outside KT’s Barbeque restaurant, can continue wearing her revealing halter top and short shorts, according to a ruling Monday night by Reading’s Board of Zoning Appeals. On May 13, the city’s Design Review Board agreed to let BarBe Q remain on display outside as long as she wore more modest attire. But the zoning board removed that restriction. The board's vote was 3-2 in favor of KT's Barbecue and owner Kenny Tessel.“I am happy. I am very happy. Now, we can get back to business," Tessel said.”

God bless America (except for those prisses and prudes on the Design Review Board along with the two on the Board of Zoning Appeals who voted to uphold their original decision.) Why can’t they be more like Dave Shultz of Mukilteo, WA who builds radio-controlled tanks? Rather large ones:
”MUKILTEO -- As soon as Dave Shultz unloaded his radio-controlled model tanks at Mukilteo's Lighthouse Park, a crowd of passersby came gawking. These aren't toys, as Shultz is fond of saying. The largest of his set of four military tanks is more the size of a VW Bug.”

At the link there are videos of the tanks cavorting around or something. Apparently they don’t shoot or anything but it’d really hurt if one ran over your toes.
