Fundraising opportunity awaits Dan Casey – opening bid $2

Dan Casey Challenged to Bare It All

With the first @WSLS “breaking news” tweet I thought of one person. No it wasn’t River Laker. It wasn’t the victims of the prank at 202 Market – though I expect they are totally pissed at being charged by the ABC board.

No alcohol in combination with stripping is allowed in Virginia.

My first thoughts were of Dan Casey, The Roanoke Times columnist, blogger, and lover of the naked male physique. Before you think that I have a hankering to see Dan naked let me dispel that notion [gasp] now.

Dan must have tripped over, stepped on, and made audible screeching sounds in a breakneck blog post about 202 Market getting charged for River Laker’s surprise striptease Valentine’s fundraiser.

However, Dan is beginning to worry me with his preoccupation with Mr. Laker’s nakedness. Art is in the eye of the beholder and Dan doth “behold” too much me thinketh.

I can see Dan will milk this for all it’s worth and he will have plenty of opportunity as this issue works through to the ABC hearing. Then if 202 Market is fined – will they sue Mr. Laker, then as an employee of Roanoke City will he be reprimanded or worse?

What say we have Dan perform a striptease fundraiser at a NON-alcoholic establishment for the charity of his choice. If Roanoke City doesn’t mind their employee stripping on his own time I’m sure Debbie Meade would be OK with Dan doing the same. It would be good for circulation – I think. Give it a try Dan. A worthy charity awaits.

I’ll start the bidding at $2! Do I hear $3?

What gets me is how he’s calling out WSLS! Pot meet kettle!!! Let’s count how many Roanoke Times blog posts and “articles” (and I use that term lightly)on the “scandal” pop up over the next couple of days. Maybe the RT editorial board can find a way to jump aboard too and boost their blog hits!

Oh, and there’s no way I’m bidding anything to see Spanky’s twin strip.

LOL, Elena!

Yes, I’m having second thoughts on my $2.

It looks like the picture was taken at 202 Market yet. He enjoyed the “show.”

Well, it took them a while but the RTEB actually did jump aboard…pathetic. Meanwhile I lost count as to how many times Spanky’s twin threw gasoline on the extinguishing flame.

I guess the RTEB had to put some distance between all the other commentary. At least they laid out a practical critique – not bashing another news org.

The ABC has to follow the laws they didn’t make. 202 Market is caught in a situation they did not create. The perpetrator inflicting the damage goes free and is exalted (unless he gets sued later depending on the hearing outcome.)
