Let's be careful out there, especially if you are in college

    This is sad on so many fronts. It also says something about the journalism business and how people perceive us.

    $20 for a blow job?

    Sometimes, you get what you pay for ... and then some.

    Pretty standard price for a BJ. It's all a very fucked up scene to say the least.
    It's also sad that we're in the business to inform people yet when we do, people turn on us and I think in some cases, for good reason.

    If these people can't understand the difference between Howard Dean making a boilerplate speech and a prostitute knowingly infecting people with AIDS in terms of newsworthiness, then there's no point in trying to convince them otherwise.

    Meat, that's why we have the problems we have today. The negativity wears people down. Of course we know which story attracts more readers, it's the gloomy one.
    But many people want sunshine up their ass a few times a week. Perhaps that might not be such a bad thing.

    But part of the problem is that people want nothing BUT sunshine up the ass. Assuming it's their ass. Hump their legs and you can cut off everyone else's. I don't know from shit about how the Philadelphia media covers Cheyney (the school or the vice president), but in a market that big, it's hard to get heard unless you do something unique -- be it good or bad. If you tried to hand out sunshine enemas to everyone in Philly, you'd never have the time to report news.

    Every single school in America has an honours event. Not every school has an HIV-positive hooker running around its dorms nude giving blowjobs away for $20.

    That's why it's a story.

    Those quotes cracked me up.

    It's true. Do an FOI request on any major school's public information department and they'll have listed about half a mil or so for prostitute hush money.
  10. Reading this story made me think of this:

    When I was in school there was a girl (known as "Dirty D") who had some issues.
    She wasn't a prostitute - rather she chose to give it away like a free ice cream sample at Baskin Robbins. She wasn't real particular.
    We're not talking about one guy at a time. Two. Three at a time, whatever.
    She was also notorious for running Frat trains.
    I remember being in my dorm room one evening when she came down from one of the frat floors (not mine), supposedly after a train session.
    The two guys who brought her down walked her to the door and left. She stood outside the dorm, looking up and screamed "My pussy needs more cock!"
    A few minutes later, a few boys from another frat came down to get her. They had no qualms about it. She was a regular for them.
    It was sad ... I always felt sorry for her. I figured she suffered some sexual trauma (rape, incest, who knows) before college (like 98 percent of the world's porn stars).
    ... Once, she was found by an RA passed out, naked in the shower. She was drunk, possibly high, and had to have her stomach pumped.
    She left school shortly thereafter.
    I'm not sure she had AIDS, but I have no doubt she was certainly afflicted with at least a few of the lesser known, but more common, STDs.

    OK, let me ask this right now. Is there a single action I can take or a word I can utter that won't immediately be construed as racist or unfair? Seriously. To claim it's a race thing is ridiculous.
