Update On Topless Coffee Shop - Not All Are Happy With Idea
<snip>

MADISON -- A Saco businessman who hoped to open a topless coffee bar on Main Street promised Thursday to reconsider after residents spoke out against his plans at a Planning Board meeting.

Normand St Michel said he was surprised at the reaction to his proposal and promised residents outside the meeting that he took their concerns seriously.

"I was all for it when I came here, but now I am split down the middle," he said. He added his wife was also against the plan.

Ann Harsh, who works at a convenience store on Main Street, was one of those voicing opposition and said outside the Planning Board meeting that she was glad St Michel was having second thoughts. Madison has plenty of places where people can get a cup of coffee and doesn't need one that focuses on sex, she said.

1. How unoriginial: "Debbie Does Donuts" the topless donut shop in
Fort Collins, CO of a few years back still manages to get votes for "best donut shop" of the year in the local newspaper! (though it closed not long after Geraldo visited--not surprisingly)

3. what a coward
I thought that businessmen were supposed to be risk-takers. It would have been the best thing since hooters <---even though they are still too conservatively dressed.

Well, that sinks it. If mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy. :)
