    No sweat - my next slip up will put me at one more than McD's has sold burgers.

    Her focus is really on the kids and the internet.

    My bad

    Thanks for catching my slip-up...can tell you
    that Donna Rice Hughes is not much fun to
    listen to--she's often appearing at Congressional
    hearings to talk about the evils of sites like this.

    Too bad Gary Condom didn't take advantage of what was availble to him in the DC area. The only reason he is in the trouble that he's in was his greed. If you must play, then it's better to pay. If he had payed and played, his reputation and career would still be intact.

    I believe you are incorrect Roman

    Prof. Hughes is Donna M. Hughes who is a professor at the Univ. of RI.

    Donna Rice goes by the name of Donna Rice Hughes. She does, however, happen to be a respected author and speaker on kids and the internet.

    Donna Hughes

    Don't know if anyone will notice this, but the 'Donna Hughes' quoted above is DONNA RICE HUGHES as in the former Miss Donna Rice as in Gary Hart.

    Neat, huh?

    I'm sure she would if you personally invited her:

    dhughes@uri.edu


    (ps to Monk-while some cyberlitigate issues nor susceptible to resolution,Professor Hughes appears to be endeavoring to do something socially responsibile. If she becomes a talking head because of it,it's okay)

    If $250/hour is "high end" in D.C., WHY DON'T SOME OF THOSE GIRLS MOVE UP HERE!!!

    Also, I love: "Donna Hughes, a professor of women's studies at the University of Rhode Island and an expert on how the sex industry has been influenced by the Internet." I knew someone, somewhere, would turn reading these boards into a profession and get paid for it! What a scam.

    Don't articles like this tend to induce the coppers to crack down on this sort of thing?

    "Area police find that their hands are tied."

    Most girls I know charge extra for that.

    Dear Ladies & Gents:

    In an effort to foster additional dialogue and discourse, I have posted the URL of an article discussing the current state of "escortism".

    http://www.bizforward.com/wdc/currentissue/feelove/

    Apparently, business is good! I know that I have done my part to "subsidize" some of the local as well as visiting fledgling businesses.

    Best regards,
    "Othello"
