Dat ol' debbil moon

A judge in Montgomery County, Maryland has ruled that mooning someone does not constitute an act of indecent exposure.

Raymond McNealy, 44, of Rockville, had a dispute with a neighbor; he expressed his opinion in a graphic, if not necessarily callipygian, manner. Originally, the courts found against McNealy; in his appeal, he claimed that state law demanded a more, um, frontal assault for conviction, and this week the appeal was upheld.

Counsel for McNealy remarked that the decision should "bring comfort to all beachgoers and plumbers" in the Old Line State.
