Reader: Seeing junk during Naked Pumpkin Run not as scary as wrong Google images search

Our piece yesterday about the Boulder Police Department preparing for a possible Naked Pumpkin Run and revived Boulder Mall Crawl Halloween weekend drew a philosophical comment from one reader.

In his opinion, being unexpectedly confronted by a giant image of someone's special place on a computer screen is considerably more disturbing than seeing the same parts on some pants-free person jogging past.

Here's the comment offered by Anonymous:

Let them do their thing. Performing the wrong image search in google is more traumatizing than seeing a streaker (admit it... we've all been victims of google image search). Your world will not crumble because you accidentally saw someone's junk. I'm sure the police and city council have been worried about this all year. Quick cops... grab the running naked people and make an awkward situation even more awkward.
