Opening Arguments

The naked and the dead

I wasn't really going to say much about this, merely point out that it's an opening sentence not many of us ever expected to see:

An Illinois man apparently drowned while swimming at a nudist colony just west of Valparaiso, Indiana.

But then I got to thinking about it. The nudist experience has been so foreign to Indiana that Roselawn became infamous just because it had a colony. Now there's one in Valparaiso? Actually, there are five "clubs" in the state operated by the American Association of Nude Recreation (which has the motto "Shed your worries when you shed your clothers"). I'm guessing volleyball is still the preferred recreation.

Yeah, I'm guessing that POLO isn't on their "short list" of activities, either.

(OK, so where EXACTLY do you carry the cellphone anyway?)
