    Go Hawkeyes! No better - or safer! - place to hoist a few than in the safety of one's own front porch!

    From the article:

    "The right to be drunk on the front porch of a private home was endorsed Friday by the Iowa Supreme Court, which said a woman can't be convicted of public intoxication while standing on her front steps.

    "Justices agreed, rejecting a district court judge's conclusion that Paye's front porch was a public place because it was plainly accessible and visible to any passers-by and it was a place to which the public is permitted access."

    Would there also be a right to be nude on one's front porch since it is not considered to be a public place?

    Yes, they don't have to look.
