    I guess this comes down to whether or not the owner of a business should have the right to let in whomever he wants to or not. Anyone who's been to Vegas, NYC, Miami, etc knows that that hotspots will litterally walk thru lines and tell people "not to bother" based on their appearance. I've seen it happen all the time. I'm not saying it's right, simply that this is very, very common.

    Club tells ‘fat’ women to go home

    By Elaine Byrne

    FEMALE clubbers were refused entry into Havana nightclub on Saturday night for being too fat. Police were called to calm the situation outside the Halkett Street club as bouncers and manager Martin Sayers allegedly told women to ‘go away and lose some weight’.

    Over 20 women are expected to give statements to the police today and a Facebook page, labelled Havana Club Jersey Discrimination and using an image from US cartoon Family Guy, has already attracted over 100 supporters calling for Islanders to boycott the club.

    Georgina Mason was one of the ladies refused entry. The 23-year-old, who works for Lloyds TSB, had been enjoying a night out with friends when it turned sour. ‘About five or six or us got to Havana at about 11.30 pm and the bouncers said we were not allowed in because we were too big. I told them not to be ridiculous and asked to speak to the manager,’ she said.

    ‘When the manager came out he would not look at me directly but said that they had received too many complaints about fat people and he told me: “Go and lose some weight before you can come in – fat people are bad for business.”

    Eh, I can see where he's coming from with the "bad for business" part. But honestly, if I were a manager of a night club, I'd let anybody in. Hey, if they go in and spend money on drinks, they're worth something.

    This guy says he is too fat to get the death penlalty!!

    ANDREW WELSH-HUGGINS (AP) - Associated Press Writer COLUMBUS, Ohio A death row inmate scheduled for execution says he's too fat to be put to death, claiming executioners would have trouble finding his veins and that his weight could diminish the effectiveness of one of the lethal injection drugs.
    Lawyers for Richard Cooey argue in a federal lawsuit that Cooey—5-feet-7 and 267 pounds—had poor veins when he faced execution five years ago and the problem has been worsened by weight gain.

    The lawsuit, filed Friday in federal court, also says prison officials have had difficulty drawing blood from Cooey for medical procedures.

    Cooey, 41, is sentenced to die for raping and murdering two young women in 1986. His execution is scheduled for Oct. 14.

    His attorneys say a drug he is taking for migraine headaches could affect the execution process. The drug Topamax, a type of seizure medication, may have created a resistance to thiopental, the drug used to put inmates to sleep before two other lethal drugs are administered, Dr. Mark Heath, a physician hired by the Ohio Public Defender's Office, said in documents filed with the court.

    Heath says Cooey's weight, combined with the potential drug resistance, increases the risk he would not be properly anesthetized.

    "All of the experts agree if the first drug doesn't work, the execution is going to be excruciating," Cooey's public defender, Kelly Culshaw Schneider, said Monday.



    Gee, I'm alll broke up that this guy might actually suffer!!!

    They should try that drug called Smith & Wesson. It works with one shot when used properly. :D

    I support what this club is trying to do. With the price of food going through the roof, action MUST be taken to drive down costs.

    But, but, but... THAT'S CRUEL! How can we possibly subject these rapists and murderers to a cruel and painful death like that? SO inhumane!
