The blatant hypocrisy of those opposed to the Extasy club in Northridge featuring live nude girls bares more than skin. I bet the majority of those protesting Extasy have no problem with movies that glorify mayhem and all manner of illicit sex playing in theaters right in their own holy and sacrosanct neighborhood. "Bugsy"--replete with murder, sex and the glorification of gangsterism--is viewed highly, but the viewing of the naked human body is to be protested and prevented.

A Stanton bar had its liquor license revoked Thursday for allowing waitresses to solicit customers for beers at inflated prices and for permitting the sale of cocaine on the premises. "Our mission is to make communities stronger, and this obviously wasn't a business that was adding value to the community," Mark DeSio, a spokesman for the state Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control, said of the Extasis Caliente Nightclub in the 11000 block of Beach Boulevard.

I recently visited the Extasy club in Northridge (Letters to the Editor, Valley Edition, Feb. 6). Besides finding it a healthy, nonviolent and disease-free form of entertainment, I also found it to be fun. Are they planning on outlawing fun? Here we see the same pattern that occurs during election time--our politicians diverting the voters' attention from the real problems and creating an issue that they can preach about. As a taxpayer, I hope that someday our elected officials will devote as much time to the real problems facing families in the Valley as they do to this nonsense.

An appellate court order forbidding nude dancing and strip-tease entertainment at the Extasy club in Northridge was upheld Thursday when the California Supreme Court refused to review an appeal by the club owners. The state Supreme Court's decision ends a legal showdown between the city and Extasy's operators over municipal zoning, begun by Councilman Hal Bernson when the club opened in January in a former restaurant at Corbin Avenue and Nordhoff Street.

So John Bennett of North Hollywood enjoyed going to the Extasy club in Northridge for what he feels is healthy, nonviolent and disease-free fun (Letters to the Editor, Valley Edition, Feb. 8)? And he believes that protests from those of us who live near the establishment are nonsense, dreamed up by politicians? I live half a mile from it and was accustomed to taking our young children to the family restaurants nearby. Not any more. What may be fun to a grown man is wholly unsuitable for young children and has no business operating where it does.

The opening of the Extasy nude dance club at Corbin Avenue and Nordhoff flagrantly disregarded public opinion as well as being against city ordinances. Whose rights are being protected? The citizens, patrons and business persons of the Northridge business area or a handful of sneaky and contemptible nightclub promoters? It is bad enough that businesses in this area have already suffered the weekly Friday and Saturday night crowds that frequented the Breakers' live band performances.

Is there such a thing as a politically correct nude dancing club? To the general public, there is something inherently sleazy about any club featuring women dancing naked for a room full of salivating men. But the buff buffs--the community of those who hang about or work in nude dancing clubs--say that Northridge's Extasy club was groping for something a bit more . . . elevated.

The Extasy, a Northridge club featuring nude dancers, will remain open through the weekend, despite action against it by the Los Angeles City Council and building inspectors. "We're open and we're planning to stay open," said Steve Gamer, a spokesman for the club on Corbin Avenue near Nordhoff Street. "We're going to adhere to the law. We plan to fight any attempt to close us down."

At the request of the city of Los Angeles, a Superior Court judge Thursday ordered nude dancing halted at the Extasy club in Northridge, but the entertainers danced on. Owners of the club said they were aware of the order but had not received official notice from authorities as the night wore on and would not halt the dancing until required to. "We're going to continue operating until we've worked out the legal problems," Extasy spokesman Steve Gamer said. "We have been served no notices.

In response to Jim Herron Zamora's column "Nude Dance Club vs. the System" Feb. 15, I'm 100% part of the system--the system for clean living, moral dignity and self-respect. Classy, wholesome, free speech? Come on, what kind of garbage is this? No liquor? Only fruit juice? The empty six-packs and wine bottles in the parking lot tell a different tale. What about the guys that get their hands stamped and run across Corbin Avenue to the two restaurants that have bars? Randy claims he has a family and a job. He just comes for a "little tease."

A Northridge club, hit by a restraining order because it features nude dancing, was closed by its owners Friday while they try to get the order rescinded. "We're going to keep closed until we get things sorted out with the judge. It's all up to the attorneys," said Mike Saalih, co-owner of the Extasy club. "We still think we'll be able to open up later."
