Not that impressed

Perhaps I’m another jaded American, perhaps my vantage point wasn’t good enough (though I did walk across it), or perhaps I just expected too much, but I wasn’t overly impressed with the Hoover Dam. Of course I’m glad I’ve seen it and touched it, but it just didn’t live up to the hype. However, I do deeply appreciate it from an engineering standpoint based upon the 4,456 documentaries I’ve seen on it.

Prostitution 1

I’m going to expand on this significantly when I get the time, but I’m adding this as more or less a reminder to myself. I would like to see some early discussion, however.

While in Vegas, the issue of prostitution of course came up. There seems to be little to no rational reasoning for making it illegal. The drugs, diseases, and crime that goes along with the ‘profession’ are all directly tied to the fact that the practice cannot be practiced under any actual regulation.

But again, this is a bit of a placeholder post. Discuss.
