Reader's View: OK to call a strip club a strip club

The Dec. 3 letter, "Headline disrespected jazz venue," caught my attention as I have musician friends who have played at Club Saratoga in Canal Park. The letter seemed to take offense that the Saratoga was described by the News Tribune in its headline as a "strip club."

Was the club now strictly a live music venue? Curious, I checked. In the opening sentence at its current website, Club Saratoga describes itself as "the hottest stripclub [sic] in Northern Minnesota."

If Club Saratoga describes itself as a strip club, why shouldn't the News Tribune use the same term?
