NYC mayor: Not always obvious who's a prostitute

NEW YORK New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Friday it's not always easy to spot a prostitute.

The subject came up during Bloomberg's weekly radio show when WOR host John Gambling asked him about an anti-sex-trafficking bill passed by the City Council on Wednesday.

The bill is intended to stop cabbies from knowingly driving prostitutes to meet their johns. One provision of the bill would enlist drivers to help steer prostitutes away from illegal activities.

1. Perhaps Bloomberg

Should outlaw women driving too. Cause you never know where they are going after all. It's for their own good. Men know what's best for women. Never mind about catching the John's. They probably have families and a job and such.

2. It's true

My best friend in high school lived at his parents' house through college and then for a few months after getting his first real job. He was driving home after a late night at the office and needed some caffeine so he stopped at his favorite coffee place. There were a few inches of snow on the ground, and more was coming down. A young lady, not dressed for the weather, was talking to a guy through his car window when she came up to him and asked for a ride home. Since it was on the way, my friend agreed. Once he arrived at her apartments, he bid her a good night, stay warm, etc. The woman just looked at him for a second, perplexed then asked, "You're not wanting to come up?" My friend replied that he had had a long day and just needed to get home and go to bed.

It was five miles later that he realized that he had just ruined a prostitute's night.

6. I love this part

"The city did not admit any fault in the settlement. And Portland police spokeswoman Mary Wheat says officers have every right to question a woman walking in an area where prostitution arrests are frequent."


Guilty until proven innocent I guess.

5. So stop looking then!

And aim the millions you'll save at doing something useful. Problem solved.
