Man Arrested For Being Naked At Home
Eric Williamson says he just wanted to make some coffee and start his day.  Fairfax County police say that he was intentionally displaying himself.  Either way you look at the issue, a man got arrested for being naked in his own home .   He faces up to a year in jail and a $2,000 fine, and the police department faces embarrassment and a civil lawsuit in return.

The Story of Box Sash Windows
Sash windows in the form of very basic timber shutters have a history dating back as far as the thirteenth century as very simple timber sliding shutters. In the sixteenth century glazed sash windows started to appear, these windows sliding horizontally. Vertical glazed sash windows would not appear until the mid seventeenth century and it is believed they originated in France.
When the nobility came to England (in asylum from the guillotine!) they brought with them new ideas and designs of the more sophisticated vertical sliding sash windows across the Channel.
The first recorded glazed sliding sash window was installed for the Queen Mother who had just returned from France with a highly skilled French joiner who pushed for the complete renovation of Somerset house in London.
The development of the sliding sash window is not very clear and numerous theories circulate. It is commonly believed that a weighted and balanced version was actually invented in England.
The original vertical sliding sash windows would have been very heavy with thick bars separating the tiny glass panels due to the fact that the glass was so thin, the window would have been a difficult window in its function.

Doors of past had been counter balanced in a similar way of today’s sash windows, exactly who and when the system was applied to the sash window is unknown.
The sash window has never been patented nor has anybody throughout history has ever claimed to be its inventor.
As glass manufacturing advanced sash windows started to have less glazing bars but it was not until the King of England ended taxation based on how much glass you had in your windows that the glass in sash windows became larger.
During the period of British history when glass taxation existed, it was a great sign of extreme wealth and prestige to have large glazed windows in ones home.
