Strippers are usually considered self-centered types, maybe because it's hard to think of many causes that seem to really rally them as a group -- you know, things like the need for environmentally friendly nipple tassels or warmer poles, that kind of thing.
That's why it's so heart-warming to see them come out showing a united front in their battle against New Jersey's pending smoking ban. About 700 of them turned out to protest last week, saying things like, "If they take smoking away, I am not going to be able to support my two kids." And as any parent can attest, that's a tough conversation to have with your children -- the one about how Mom can't make enough money dancing naked since they won't allow the men to smoke anymore, I mean.
Meanwhile, it might be time for us, as a society, to ask, why would men need to smoke in strip clubs in the first place? Just viewing all the undulating bosoms isn't enough? There is such a thing as being greedy.
