A simple message to the Herald on Sunday - there is nothing wrong with being naked. Even if you are a Judge.

In economic jargon, a Pareto optimal outcome is one in which you cannot improve any individual's position without thereby making another individual worse off. There's probably already a term in existence for the mirror opposite situation - one where every person loses out, and any other outcome would make someone else happier.
