KOOL Question of the Day


**Voting is Completely Anonymous**

Officials in Burien, Washington passed an ordinance banning certain behavior in public places. Visitors to the city parks, city hall, and even the library are prohibited from using obscene language, not wearing enough clothing, and having poor hygiene. Offenders can be barred from the public place for a year.  City officials say the measure is necessary to protect the public from foul smells, because some people have such bad BO that it's hard for others to be in that same space.  The ACLU believes the ordinance is unconstitutional because it appears to single out homeless people.

The "KOOL Question of the Day" is:

 "Should people be banned from public places for inappropriate behavior or hygiene?"
