I have been going to the wrong University

I should've went to the University of Maryland: They have female professors who run prostitution rings, from their own homes. Imagine that! But Howard County vice officers say she was also developing a résumé of a much different sort: The 41-year-old mother of two is accused of running a prostitution service from her Ellicott City home under the alias Alexis. According to charging documents, Britton advertised her services and rates on a Web site. Jeez....

Police began investigating Britton 10 months ago after receiving complaints about her Web site, which was shut down yesterday. This week, a police officer working undercover made an appointment with her. According to charging documents, Britton opened the door and led the officer to an upstairs bedroom. She told him to undress and place $400 on a table by the door. After leaving the marked police bills, the officer went to the front door and let other officers inside to arrest Britton, according to documents.

Police found 150 condoms and other pieces of evidence, the documents said. Officers also removed several business records that they say tie her to the Web site and prostitution, the documents said. Yesterday, Howard County police spokeswoman Sherry Llewellyn declined to say what those records included.

I heard of liberal professors, but damn!

First of all, if your going to post an article on this, it should at least have pictures. Also, the WaPo has a list of blogs commenting on the article and yours wasn't listed!!!

For all of you that swing the other way, Congressman Barney Frank D-MA also had a little business running from his D.C. home. His boyfriend was CEO!

I'm sorry to say that this aspect of the American culture embarasses me. What two concenting adults do behind closed doors is no one else's business. If she wants to earn extra money this way, and a man wants to pay for it, then let free enterprise reign.

Nice to see our tax-dollars hard at work on stupid stuff like this instead of doing real crime work, like the looting of pension funds and medi-care fraud.

I have to give it to Australia for being smart about this. They decriminalzed prostitution. There are "not-illegal" brothels where this business can be conducted. That way the public doesn't have deal with street hookers.
