Brothels and cemeteries don't mix, say Australians
(Filed: 06/06/2006)

Australian local governments have passed legislation to prevent brothels from opening near cemeteries.
Local governments in the northern state of Queensland have called on state authorities to establish a 220 yard exclusion zone around cemeteries.
It follows a decision by a council in Ipswich, just outside the Queensland capital Brisbane, to reject a proposal for a brothel to be built across the road from the local cemetery.
Paul Pisasale, mayor of Ipswich, said cemeteries were places for quiet reflection by families who should not have to put up with "a brothel going on next door".
"It's totally inappropriate. There's a place for brothels and a place for cemeteries and we don't believe the two mix," he said.

Yeah - course the first stop would actually be the boozer, then the brothel :)
