There is really not a reason that I can grip on. Pay what you owe.
This Daily News story is not a story about prostitution. Okay, this is a story about prostitution, but not the reasons that you think. I am pro-choice. If a woman (or a man) wants to sell a commodity (their body) to a buyer (john, or trick) at an agreed upon price, that is just capitalism. I know that people will use the child sex slave scandals as a reason to disagree with prostitution, but incorrect usage is not a reason to deny…in theory consenting males and females should be able to enter into an agreement.
Sex is one of the biggest weapons anyone can utilize. How many of you have done something to get into the sheets? How many of us have done something like faked interest in something as an entry to starting a relationship? Yes, some relationships, that are strong, are built on an initial lie. Even for the people of ChristianMingle.com, who just happen to bombard the ESPN airwaves with their commercials.
Really, pay what you owe…
CARTAGENA, COLOMBIA – The Daily News published the first photos of the Colombian call girl whose encounter with a cheapskate Secret Service agent set off the agency’s worst sex scandal.
Dania Suarez, the 24-year-old single mom of a 9-year-old son, has gone into hiding as the scandal mushrooms, according to neighbors.
A friend stopped by late Wednesday to pick up her dog, a pug named Valentino, they said.
Suarez, originally from the island of San Andres, is a quiet tenant who rents a small apartment in a hacienda-style home for about $600 a month, neighbors said.
They often saw her go out late and come home at dawn, dangling her high heels in her hand.
“She never told us what she did for a living but it was obvious,” said Maria Quintero, 31, who lives on the first floor of the three story white building.
“She was home all day and left late at night looking very nice,” Quintero said.
So, they knew what she did, but it was not a problem for them. All seemingly agreed that she was a good mother, which must be hard, if you are having a kid at fifteen.
“I asked her if she worked, she said no. I asked her if her boyfriend helped her, she said no. Then it hit me.”
Another neighbor, Maria Estela Cubides, 45, said Suarez seemed to have a glamorous life out on the town, but kept to herself at home.
“She always left late at night. She traveled a lot, to fancy destinations,” Cubides said. “She never brought guys home. She kept to herself. I’m surprised she did all that noise to get her money. She’s not that kind of person.”
Another neighbor, Dona Betty, said Suarez told people she was a dancer.
“She showed up early in the morning, with her heels on her hands,” she said. “We suspected, but she keeps to herself. She is a good mother.”
Here is where the problem lies. Prostitution is legal in Columbia, it is a business transaction. PAY WHAT YOU OWE!
Prostitution is legal in Colombia, and escorts, hookers and streetwalkers crowd the streets of the tourist districts.
Suarez has said she was a “high class” escort who made $800 – 1.4 million pesos – a night to dress well and provide sparkling company as well as have sex.
The average Colombian household earns $287 a month.
Eleven Secret Service agents and nine military servicemen are under investigation for hiring 20 or 21 hookers in Cartagena last week when they were supposed to be preparing for President Obama’s April 13 arrival at a regional summit.
Suarez was one of the girls brought back to the posh Hotel Caribe to party with the G-men on the night of April 11.
According to the story Suarez has told friends and the press, the still-unnamed agent kicked her out of his room the next morning with only $28 in cab fare.
She caused a ruckus in the hallway, demanding her full payment, while the agent remained locked in the locked hotel room and wouldn’t come out.
Dude, just pay her. Just pay her and we never hear about this, you get to keep your job and you don’t hurt the president. She did her part, met her terms in the contract. Being too drunk is not an excuse. This is also the reason to get the money first, because of fools like this.
Soon Cartagena cops got involved and while the payment dispute was ultimately settled by a whip-round among some of the other Secret Service agents, word reached the US Embassy.The men were ordered home, put on leave and stripped of their security clearances.
Three Secret Service agents, including two supervisors, were ousted Wednesday.
CBS News named two of the three Thursday: Greg Stokes, a supervisor who handled the bomb sniffing dogs, was fired. He is fighting to keep his job, exercising his option to appeal the firing.
More were on the verge of being canned.“Several more people will be pushed out either today or tomorrow,” Rep. Peter King (D-NY) said Thursday.
Two secret service agents have been given polygraphs and more are expected, two sources said.
ABC News reported that the men had booked a party space at the hotel expecting a bash for about 30 people.
“That allegation is coming from the media, but it is being checked out,” King said.
White House officials have said the president’s security was not compromised but investigators are looking into whether the agents left sensitive papers in their rooms where the hookers could have had access to them.
In addition, people on scene said the unnamed agent was still roaring drunk the next morning, when he got into the dispute with Suarez, and that could have affected his job performance.

Times are tough this holiday season. People don’t have jobs and kids are looking for the next big thing to play with and store in their closet. So, while we don’t condone robbing, we can understand some of the sociological pressures to have the latest things.
People at the Hilltop Mall in wonderful Richmond, CA (no sarcasm intended or implied) risked life and limb to get these shoes. There was gunfire, where a guy tried to pull a
Cheddar Bob, Plaxico Burress and let off gunfire while waiting for the stores to open. But, it was an accident, so that doesn’t count. We grew up with some snatch and grabbers, but not with fools robbing with guns. When you go that far, you have to be ready to use. That was the Bridge too Far for most of the dudes we hung out with.
But, this time justice prevailed. For those who have a job, they understand that they work hard for usually meager wages to make it work. They get up every day and in some cases, do a job they hate. Robbing is easy, but you have to have some skill. This is the story of Mostafa Hendi, who needs to take a remedial course in how to rob, or at least listen to my man 50.

HENDERSONVILLE, N.C. –A robbery suspect got a lot more than cash when he tried to hold up a North Carolina store.
An employee knocked the suspect unconscious at the “We Buy Gold” business on the Spartanburg highway in Hendersonville on Friday and held him down until police arrived.
“He came through the door. He had his hand down here on his waist, hoodie on his head, he said ‘Gimme the money, gimme the money, gimme the money,’” said employee Derek Mothershead.
“And I got up, and I threw my hands up and said take the money if you want it.”
Mothershead took matters into his own hands.
“He had a bag and instead of putting it in the bag I kind of handed it to him,” he recalled. “I said here, take it take it. And I just kind of came in and hit him.”
Mothershead knocked the robber, 25-year-old Mostafa Hendi, unconscious.
“If he wants money get a job, work like everybody else in this world.”
Mothershead held down Hendi, who was bleeding, and called police.
“We Buy Gold” manager Juan Cruz said knocking out armed robbers isn’t exactly store police. But he had a message for anyone considering robbing the store:
“Merry Christmas … Mostafa Hendi.”
Hendi is charged with armed robbery with a dangerous weapon.
He’s in jail on $100,000 bond.
Video can explain why good triumphs over evil this holiday season.
Wow. And that was with the left. He never saw it coming. Didn’t he see Friday?
I still think that the worst part was that he had to clean up his own blood, because he was leaking all over the place. This is the picture..,remember that this is one punch.

Happy Non denomination holidays. As Bing Crosby once sang, I’m dreaming of a White Christmas, but he certainly did not mean it this way…
I wasn’t dreaming of a white Christmas, but reading this made me think of brotherly love and I came to the realizaation that I don’t love my brother this much…
Man Dies After Eating Ounce of Cocaine Out Of Brother’s Butt
thesmokinggun.comBy JULIA JACOBOpix11.com | @wpix9:41 p.m. EST, December 20, 2011SOUTH CAROLINA (PIX11)—After eating an ounce of cocaine hidden in his brother’s buttocks, a South Carolina man died soon after.Deangelo Mitchell, 23, and his brother Wayne, 20, were in the back of a North Charleston Police Department cruiser on Nov. 30. The duo was being transported to jail when they began whispering about narcotics hidden inside the older sibling.
The Mitchells were arrested when a police officer found three small bags of cocaine underneath a rear seat of their 2001Chrysler. It is evident in video footage that Deangelo Mitchell encouraged his younger brother to ingest the cocaine. The older Mitchell has a lengthy record and was concerned that he could face life in prison if convicted of a narcotics charge. “I can’t get no more strikes,” he told his brother.
He further directed his brother to “Eat that s***” and “Chew that s***.”
In the footage, Wayne Mitchell can be seen, in handcuffs, reaching back to retrieve the cocaine from his brother. He then drops his head while he eats the cocaine.
Wayne Mitchell soon after began convulsing and bleeding from his mouth. “White powder residue” was found on the rear seat of the police cruiser, cops noted. Deangelo later said “he believed his brother swallowed an ounce of cocaine.”
Wayne Mitchell died within an hour of ingesting the cocaine.
Deangelo Mitchell was initially charged with narcotics trafficking and was released from custody after posting $50,000 bond. But after a review of the police footage, authorities rearrested him Tuesday, charging him with involuntary manslaughter in connection with his brother’s death.

ESPN replaces Jon Miller-Joe Morgan team for baseball broadcastsPhoto by AP – File
Jon Miller and Joe Morgan spent 21 seasons together in ESPN’s “Sunday Night Baseball” booth, an extraordinarily long run in the world of national sports television. But there will not be a 22nd.
With both of their contracts having expired, ESPN decided it was time to make the long-anticipated move to replace them and give the booth a fresh sound.
ESPN did not name a replacement, but The New York Times [NYT] reported the leading candidate is Dan Shulman, long one of the network’s most respected play-by-play men.
Orel Hershiser, who joined Miller and Morgan last season, presumably would stay on as an analyst. Bobby Valentine could serve as a third man in the booth, the Times reported.
Miller might stay with the company as the radio voice of ESPN’s Sunday games, but Morgan will not. For years the Hall of Fame second baseman’s work has been a target of many critics in the media and among fans.
Miller’s primary job is as play-by-play voice of the World Series champion Giants, whose crowning moment he called on radio for ESPN alongside Morgan. Miller received the Hall of Fame’s Ford C. Frick Award this past summer.
“Jon and Joe have contributed greatly to the success of ’Sunday Night Baseball’ for the past 21 seasons,” ESPN executive vice president Norby Williams said in a statement.
“Over the last two decades, Joe went from Hall of Fame player to one of his sport’s top analysts and Jon’s Hall of Fame voice and tremendous knowledge of the game have connected with baseball fans everywhere. We owe them our deepest thanks for an outstanding body of work.”
Only in CA is this an issue. We brought you the original Prop 215 to allow medicinal marijuana. When I was in college, maybe you had pot brownies, where you would taste the actual pot, because it was not strained out, but now with technology, the ability to make candy is crazy.
Calif. Trick-Or-Treaters Warned Of Pot-Laced Candy
Updated: Saturday, 30 Oct 2010, 12:41 PM EDT
Published : Saturday, 30 Oct 2010, 12:41 PM EDT
Trick-or-treaters in California have been warned to watch out for pot-laced candy this Halloween, the Los Angles Times reported Friday.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department issued the warning to parents in light of candy and snacks containing marijuana being confiscated from pot dispensaries.
The warning comes days before Californians vote on Proposition 19, a marijuana legalization measure.
California has state laws allowing the medical use of marijuana, but the sheriff’s department said the confiscated items were untested and unlicensed.
Officials said in their warning that parents should check Halloween candy and other snacks for indications the items were tampered with.

Ginni Thomas, the wife of Clarence Thomas drunk dials Anita Hill….another reason we need GOOGLE to save us like they did with email protection…
October 22, 2010
Drunk dialing is a pop-culture term denoting an instance in which an intoxicated individual places phone calls that he or she would not likely place if sober. The term often refers to a lonely individual calling former or current love interests.I have this disease late at night sometimes, involving alcohol and the telephone. I get drunk, and I drive my wife away with breath like mustard gas and roses. And then, speaking gravely and elegantly into the telephone, I ask the telephone operators to connect me with this friend or that one, from whom I have not heard in years.
“Drunk texting” is a related phenomenon, and potentially yet more embarrassing for the sender as, once the message is sent, it cannot be retrieved; the message will most likely be misspelled (due to being drunk), and it might be reviewed and shared among many.
Normally, when you think of drunk dialing, it’s usually made by someone looking to get some late night friction going with a partner. If you went to college, chances are you either made one, or received one from someone. Once you leave college, or even you didn’t go to college, there is a time where you get serious and put away the immediate gratification of youth. Someone forgot to tell Virginia Thomas that it’s not ladylike to get perked at 7:30 in the morning. (Unless she was drunk all night…which could happen…)
“Good morning Anita Hill, it’s Ginni Thomas.”Anita Hill got a wakeup call—both literally and figuratively—at 7:31am on a recent Saturday morning. Hill, who testified almost 20 years ago that Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas sexually harassed her, got the surprise phone call from Thomas’ wife.
“Good morning Anita Hill, it’s Ginni Thomas,” started the message. “I just wanted to reach across the airwaves and the years and ask you to consider something. I would love you to consider an apology sometime and some full explanation of why you did what you did with my husband.”
Virginia (Ginni) Thomas was referring to Hill’s 1991 Senate confirmation hearing testimony in which she claimed that her former boss, Clarence Thomas, made inappropriate sexual comments to her at work.
“So give it some thought,” Thomas continued. “And certainly pray about this and hope that one day you will help us understand why you did what you did. Okay, have a good day.”
We need this for the Telephone…STAT!
Google’s Mail Goggles Prevents Drunk Emailing
Google released a useful new Gmail feature yesterday in its labs, which could help prevent the intoxicated from sending embarrassing late-night emails they might regret in the morning. When activated, the program will force a user to solve a series of math problems before allowing any message to be sent.They are not terribly difficult, but do serve as an extra line of defense in what can be a very dangerous habit. The service is set by default to kick in only on weekend nights, but you can change the settings to apply whenever.
As for drunk dialing and texting, you’re still on your own.
Now, is Ginni so blind to the fact that this is a woman who strongly believes that she was harassed? What does she have to apologize for? Being attractive to her now husbands wandering eye? We were not there on that day, nearly twenty years ago. But, it is hard to believe that Anita just made this up. Furthering her cause, a former girlfriend of Clarence has ended her silence. Heather Horn at the Atlantic Wire explains
The Washington Post reports today that Lillian McEwan, with whom Thomas was in a relationship at the time, is now, finally, supporting Hill’s story. Apparently she didn’t see fit to say anything during the hearings, but now admits Thomas often told her about women at work, and on at least one occasion asked one of these women her bra size. Thus, as the Post’s Michael Fletcher puts it, “Hill’s allegations that Thomas had pressed her for dates and made lurid sexual references rang familiar.”
This is just like the Coke Zero commercial
The Washington Post gets involved in unraveling the mystery
Lillian McEwen dated Clarence Thomas in the ’80s — and she tells our colleague Michael Fletcher the stories Hill told about him rang true: He checked out female colleagues, once asked a woman her bra size, was “obsessed” with porn and eager to talk about it. The retired administrative law judge was okay with that and shows no rancor towards him, but — full disclosure — she’s a Democrat who doesn’t like his rulings or his sense of victimhood in the Hill matter. And yes, ahem — she’s shopping a memoir that details their “freewheeling sex life.”
At least she discloses her potential bias. Timing is interesting, but it’s not like she told Ginni to make this phone call. You would think that people in the spotlight would understand the need for discretion in their lines of work. Why not have a flunky make the call if you really needed the apology? Did you think that hearing your voice was going to make her agree with you?
Google…we should already have time machines, but until then, what about drunk dial for ANDROID?

Los Angeles Lakers guard Sasha Vujacic, 26, and tennis star Maria Sharapova, 23, are engaged to be married, the basketball player announced before Thursday night’s 120-99 preseason win over the Golden State Warriors.The proposal — which he characterized as “probably old-school” — came on the one-year anniversary of when they first met at a friend’s barbecue. “I had to do it like a gentleman,” Vujacic said.
“She was happy. The answer was yes, so I think she liked it,” said Vujacic, who the Riverside Press-Enterprise said was returning to the court after three games off due to a concussion.
The point guard made his announcement on a night when Phil Jackson and Kobe Bryant were both absent — more spotlight for him and his bride.
Now, if we don’t repeat, I will be blaming YOU! (jk, jk…you should not be the reason we win or lose…) You clearly are the winner here Sasha…
My senior thesis was on the likelyhood of another terrorist bombing on US soil.
I wrote it in 1995…funny enough, I got a B+ on the paper, but of course, I didn’t care since it was enough to get out of Dodge (or Ogden, as the case happened to be…) and get my papers…
When I read this story, I found it funny, and thought it was about time that the thoughts of women were exposed. When I was in SF going to school at San Francisco State, I had the pleasure to call some sexually liberated women my friends. While I never got to home plate with any of them, there is too many funny experiences that I shared with them.
The first one that comes to mine is a time that one of these ladies has talking about how good her sex game was. Another guy from a different school ( Berkeley) talked some smack about how good he was. Alcohol, and ego was a good mix for him. They go off and explore each other, and my friend comes back. The question was posed to her, ” Hey, how was it?” to which she replied, ” Well, I was good…”
I nearly wet myself when I hear that.
The freedom that the Duke F@$% thesis, as it is called, was hilarious and liberating. It’s good to see that we all think alike.
Here was her critieria
But, now the cat is out the bag (literally and figuratively, since Karen got around) she wants to be embarrassed about it. This is the letter she sent to Deadspin…
As the ashamed author of this slide show, I am horrified at your choice to include all the names that you did. While I cannot stop you from publishing it, this item was never meant to be seen outside of a very small circle of people. Obviously, it has gone viral. However, your inclusion of the real names are causing this awful situation to escalate even further and is actually starting to affect peoples’ lives in ways that go far beyond mere embarrassment. Remove the names immediately, or I will be adding your blog post to the list of things I discuss with my attorney when we meet. If you would like to talk further, please include your number in your response and I will contact you as soon as I can. Again, including real names is simply cruel of you and you will black them out immediately.

Owners of Brett Farve rejoice!
(I am one of those owners who had to bench him, even though I was able to steal him in the 9th round of a ten team draft)
Traffic Cops, be afraid, be very afraid in the Twin Cities! remember “straight cash homie” is going to a city near you!

MINNEAPOLIS — Minnesota Vikings receiver Randy Moss was arrested Tuesday after being accused of bumping a police traffic officer with his car.
The officer tried to stop Moss from making an illegal turn, and Moss used his car to slowly push the officer along the street, police spokeswoman Cyndi Barrington said.
Barrington said an assault charge was being considered.
The officer was not seriously hurt, WCCO-TV reported
Where is Ludacris when you need him?
Maybe we should extend an Amber warning to all the skeezers and skanks and scallywags (all better known as hoes, and like method man and redman, I mean it in a good way)
The Vikings sent a third-round pick to the Patriots in return for Moss, who becomes a key weapon for Minnesota QB Brett Favre.
The teams had not yet confirmed the trade. But Vikings S Madieu Williams said on Twitter that the deal was “official.”
Moss returns to the team where he spent the first seven years of his career. Moss caught 574 passes for 9,142 yards and 90 TDs from 1998-2004 in Minnesota.
It leaves the Patriots and QB Tom Brady without the stretch-the-field wideout who set an NFL single-season record of 23 receiving TDs in 2007.
From the Patriots position, they were on the come-up. First, they got more for the guy then what they paid for. When he was dealt from the blogs favorite team, the RAIDERS, they only got a 4th round pick, because they were happy to get rid of his contract and his dour attitude. (We still miss what could have been here in Oakland Randy) It is rare in the NFL that assets acquire more value later in their careers. Second, they did not have to give him an expensive contract extension.
Moss did not get a contract extension from the Vikings as part of the deal, NFL Network reported.
ESPN reported that Patriots coach Bill Belichick spoke by phone to inform Moss of the trade on Wednesday morning. The network described their conversation as cordial.
For Favre, the trade gives him a serious receiving threat that he has long lobbied to acquire and that he has lacked this season with Sidney Rice injured. Favre, with the Packers in 2007, pushed the team to acquire Moss but lost out to the Patriots.
This is exactly what Father Time, I mean Favre needs to get the offense on a roll. Soon, they will get Sidney Rice back and that offense will be firing on all cylinders. You will have AP (not our boy tophatal, but Adrian Peterson) Headache (not the AND1 baller, but Percy Harvin) Moss, and Rice. Plus, you have Shank Em at TE, so weapons are everywhere.
The receiver will return to New England on Oct. 31, when the Vikings visit Foxborough to the play Patriots (a game that occurs only once every eight years). Fox was already scheduled to broadcast that game nationally at 4:15 p.m. ET.
Moss’ final game in a New England uniform on Monday turned out to be his only in more than three years in which he did not catch a pass. The Herald reported that Moss had asked the Patriots to trade him after Week 1, when he had an outburst about his contract following a win against Cincinnati. Moss later apologized and said he and coach Belichick had cleared the air.
Moss, whose deal expires after the season, said after Week 1 that he wanted to stay with Patriots but added he thought this would be his final year in New England.
Moss is set to appear on Monday Night Football for the second straight week when the Vikings travel to play the New York Jets next week. He’ll likely be matched up again with Jets CBDarrelle Revis, who hasn’t played since tweaking his hamstring on a TD pass he allowed to Moss in Week 2.
Moss will be just second player to appear on MNF back to back. Keith Browner played for the San Francisco 49ers against the New York Giants on Oct. 5, 1987, then played for the Los Angeles Raiders against the Denver Broncos on Oct. 12 (viaESPN and Elias Sports Bureau).
Since the Vikings have already had their bye and the Patriots’ is Sunday, Moss could become the sixth player to play in 17 games if he plays in the rest of the Vikings’ contests.
This is another bonus to fantasy players who got jobbed this week by his unusual lack of effectiveness. It is the functional equivalent of the “do-over” in backyard sports. I guarantee that Favre will target him early and often…he is sure to be a “hit”!
