The article reports on the debate of politicians on the banning of strip clubs, red light district, when a federal judge gave them a disbursement approach either carving out a strip clubs or risk a citywide backlash by authorizing clubs in Seattle, Washington. Politicians planned to go with the first alternative in which politicians approve the proposal of Mayor Greg Nickels to put a red light district in the area south of downtown known as Sodo. However, the Sodo location was chosen over other industrial areas because it lacks casual mobility among adjacent neighborhoods.
