"Strip-ChIP" Update

Several months ago, we reported on a Texas effort to levy a $5 fee on "adult entertainment venue" clients. The proceeds from this seemingly modest tax was purported to be used to help fund health care for the uninsured (among other things).

FoIB Joe Kristan has good news for champions of free speech (and/or lapdances):
