Seattle keeps strippers 4 feet away

It would seem that few things would grab more attention than a stripper protest, and yet:

[Seattle’s] City Council on Monday approved some of the strictest adult-entertainment regulations of any major city in the country, voting 5-4 to require that dancers stay 4 feet from patrons. That means no lap dances and no folding dollar bills into G-strings. In addition, the clubs must maintain at least parking-garage brightness throughout the premises and can have no private rooms. Dancers will no longer be allowed to take money directly from customers; instead, customers will put the money in a tip jar.
