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.

Thought of the day

While in Vegas I expected a lot of people itching to get money any way they could, no matter how dishonest they had to be. That’s why the excessive foot reflexology and chiropractic practices really didn’t surprise me.

All the important news

My access to news was limited while on vacation. Of course, there was no shortage of televisions in Vegas and I tended to spend the 105 degree days inside, opting instead to go out at night when it was a mere 97 degrees, so I did catch plenty of CNN, FOX, MSNBC, and whatever other crap passes for news these days. Here’s what I’ve learned:

  • Muslims are to 9/11 victims as Nazis are to Holocaust victims.
  • I have paid so little attention to mini Donald Trump/Martha Stewart Rod Blagojevich that I’ve only recently realized it really is Rod, not Rob.

Other than that, it appears there has been no news over the past couple weeks.
