Nude Limerick for a Sweltering Day

There was once a young woman named Rose
Who enjoyed taking off all her clothes.
On her bike she would ride
Not ashamed of her hide
From her nose to her cute little toes.

It was summertime sweltering heat
Which made Rose expose more than her feet.
"Why, I haven't a care
Wearing only the air!"
She exclaimed as she rode down the street.

All the townspeople gathered to stare
Such a sight was incredibly rare.
'Cause this ample young girl
On her head had no curl
A Godiva with very short hair.

Soon the story spread out far and wide
Many others joined in for the ride
"Unless you are a prude
Being nude is not rude"
Rose explained with a heart full of pride.

AANR Refuses to Sign San Onofre Nude Beach Petition

Continuing its bizarre anti-nudity stance, the American Association for Nude Recreation refused to sign a petition initiated by the Naturist Action Committee which asks the California Department of Parks and Recreation to set aside public lands for nude recreation.

AANR continues its unilateral approach of appeasement with the DPR with the following statement:
AANR chooses to work to continue to build a working relationship with the State and not to jeopardize a positive relationship it has taken years to build by signing on to a petition presented by an organization associated with legal confrontation.
Never mind that 16 nudist and naturist groups have signed onto the petition, leaving AANR and AANR-West as the only notable invitees who refused to support the cause. It's truly extraordinary that a national nudist organization would refuse to side with so many nudists and naturists on such an important issue, whatever the reason.

The petition and links to supporting information about the fight at San Onofre can be found here.

I am asking all my readers to support this petition and to closely follow the NAC instructions about how you can help.

I am also asking everyone to let AANR know exactly how you feel about this issue. You can join in on AANR's online discussion group here, or you can contact them directly here.
