Well that's no fun

I've had to avert my eyes in Aruba and Nice, but never in, say, Atlantic Beach. But apparently nude sunbathing is an issue in the Old North State.

"Sunbathers in Brunswick County may no longer be able to avoid those tan lines," says the Associated Press.

"The Star-News of Wilmington reports that officials are trying to stop sunbathers from flaunting it all on Bird Island. The island near Sunset Beach has long been a gathering place for those who want to bask in the nude.

"A local physician recently complained about the nudity after a sightseeing trip with his children. County Commissioner Marty Cooke says he did some research and found that Bird Island was not an official nude beach and that the full exposure is against state law...."

Plus, it could give you a nasty burn.
