    Slinky, I think you're referring to "being hung" not "being hanged"

    Nothing like a good hanging and a quickie to liven up the day. These days what would serve in lieu of the hanging?

    Today's New York Times carries a review of a book about the writing of Boswell's life of Samual Johnson. From the article:


    Boswell was horny and irresponsible, already drinking too much and far too familiar with London's many prostitutes. His idea of a perfect afternoon was to watch a public hanging and then to dart down the nearest alley and buy himself a quickie.


    Ah those were the days, were they not?

    The full text of the article is at http://www.nytimes.com/2001/08/19/books/review/19MCGRATTW.html Registration required, but it's painless and then you can read the Times online every day and save 75 cents. A year of saving 75 cents every day will pay for a session with your favorite $300 girl.
