THE NETHERLANDS - The Telegraaf newspaper is reporting that the Veronica broadcasting company is being asked to remove pictures of scantily clad females from the reception area of its Hilversum headquarters.

The other tenants of the building say that they find the illustrations, taken from the pages of the Veronica listings magazine, offensive.

The building's landlord, the German company Deka Immobiliën Investments, is taking Veronica to court to force them to remove the posters from the premises.

    I wasn't referring to Deka, but to the growing conservative attitude in Holland. Soon they'll be covering up bare breasts on statues...ala Ashcroft.

    Wayne, Deka is a German firm, not American.

    Deka would do their investors a better service by not wasting their money on expensive legal fees for such frivolous lawsuits. This may partially explain why some of Deka's funds have not performed as well as expected.

    Good lord… Will these people ever grow up? You'd think none of them had any genitals of their own.
