Topless protest in Maine

Portland, Maine is not that far from Buffalo. In fact, it's where the Sabres' farm team plays. How come we always hear about these events afterwards?

Equal time: Women hold topless march in Maine
The Associated Press

About two dozen women drew a crowd of onlookers when they shed their shirts and marched downtown in Maine's largest city to promote what they call equal-opportunity public toplessness.

Organizer Ty MacDowell said the point of Saturday's march in Portland was that a topless woman out in public shouldn't attract any more attention than a man who walks around without a shirt.

The Portland Press Herald reports that by the end of the march, more than 500 people had amassed - a mix of marchers, young men snapping photos, oglers and people just out enjoying a sunny, warm day.
