Michigan courthouse will keep paintings with nude figures

PAW PAW, Mich. (AP) — Officials in a Michigan county have reversed course and won’t cover up courthouse paintings that have nude figures and bare-breasted women. WOOD-TV says Van Buren County commissioners heard from people on both sides Tuesday and decided to leave the paintings alone. One painting in a stairwell shows a bare-breasted woman holding a decapitated head and a spear. Another painting above a judge’s bench shows a nude man and nude woman begging a woman for mercy. Breasts are exposed on one woman. One painting could be more than 100 years old. Judge Kathleen Brickley says the paintings are contrary to efforts to "de-escalate trauma rather than revisit trauma." But Rose Rook spoke to commissioners and asked, "Do we have to shelter everything?" She says there are attempts to get rid of everything that "makes us uncomfortable."

Hi! I’m David, in NJ…been practicing nudism moderately for 20 years. I want to share with you some information, about a great nudist organization which I experienced for the first time over St. Patrick’s Day weekend.

They’re known as West Penn Naturist of Pittsburgh. Do search them out here on FB!

From September thru April, they host a series of indoor nude swim parties…each uniquely themed, held at the Olympic Swim And Health Club in East Pittsburgh.

They also host special meetups at White Thorn Lodge, a nudist campground and resort in Darlington, PA, north of Pittsburgh.

Do pass the information on! Great organization, if anyone’s visiting Pittsburgh on a weekend trip. Not to be missed! 🙂
