A 17-year-old high school senior working at a Hooters won't get class credit for her job because the restaurant, known for its waitresses in tight T-shirts and hot pants, is too racy, school district officials decided Thursday. Laura Williams wanted her hostess job, for which she wears long pants and a collared shirt, to count as part of a work-study program that lets students leave school early so they can work for vocational course credit. Williams plans to keep the job and give up the credit.

The audience was, interestingly, not that rapt. Only a handful of rubberneckers showed up. Theoretically, the grand opening--"produced like a TV show," the owner boasted--should have been prime locust bait. All the requisite elements--food, booze, celebrities and buxom women--were involved. Maybe the celebrities weren't famous enough. "Hey, Lou," a newsie droned desultorily as the most familiar face--the guy who used to play the Incredible Hulk--waved.
