NJ passes ordinance against changing in public…  good follow up to bombs on the beach

I've lived in New Jersey twice in my life so I feel like I have some, valid leg to stand on when I say the following...

What are they thinking?

Township Commissioner Ralph H. Bayard, who introduced the ordinance, said it was not anti-surfer. “We don’t want people walking around naked with a towel around them."

Correct me if I'm wrong but if a person has a towel around them then... they aren't naked.

If a person has a towel on them then half their body is actually fully covered. What percent coverage do you think an average bikini has... 5%?

First they put New Jersey put ten feet of sand full of shells and bomb casings on the beach (different beach in NJ)... now you can get a ticket for putting a towel around you, covering half your body... and changing.
