In response to Jim and Barbara Barr's letter, I wondered why they blame conservatives for what has been a widely held practice for millennia, the notion that sexually explicit, lewd and bawdy entertainment does not belong in family-friendly places. The concern raised by many Owensboro citizens is that the questionable venue is next to the downtown park and has a courtyard where people can be seen.
At one time we could all agree that family entertainment and sex entertainment don't go together. I would like to ask: "Should sexually-themed entertainment be part of family entertainment?" Of course, the Barrs are entitled to their opinion. They may, in fact, believe that mixing family entertainment with sexually-explicit entertainment is the best thing since sliced bread or the invention of the wheel. Who knows?
