And now for something a little less weighty: The City of Freeport in Brazoria County has designated an official red-light district inside its borders.
In a 4-0 vote Monday night, City Council approved the district on a 40-acre tract extending west from Commerce Street and north from Texas 332, more than a mile from the nearest residential neighborhood.
Businesses could include adult book and video stores, cabarets, adult theaters, escort agencies and nude modeling studios.
Although there are no sexually oriented businesses in Freeport, city leaders have been working on how to handle the businesses if they want to locate in the southern Brazoria County town.
Now that's forward thinking. I'm sure Banjo
will be pleased to hear that this matter is finally settled.

*Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!*
I've never heard of a town just BEGGING for Live Nudes! before. (I wonder what the dead sort are like.)
40 acres? Hell, the Astrodome Complex is six times larger than that. (http://www.historichouston.org/newSite/landmarks/virtual/astrohistory.html)
Of course, it can't compete with the red light district of Amsterdam, but then again, how many hours a day can you see naked women? :-)
... how many hours a day can you see naked women?
How many hours are there in a day, again?

Hold on a sec, I've got a redevelopment plan in mind...
