General Custer was not actually a general during the famous Battle of the Little Bighorn.  His general's rank was only a temporary wartime promotion. 

 By the time of the massacre, he was only a lieutenant colonel

In 1958 the Air Force lost a fully armed 2,600 lb Mark 15 nuclear bomb in the waters just off Tybee Island, GA (about 10 miles from me). It was never recovered.

The ocean water would absorb most of the blast. While much of the radiation would impact the Eastern seaboard, most of it would probably drift over into Europe. Then it would be mostly their problem. So no worries!  Cheers

We go from one of the happiest places on earth to probably one of the saddest, and while these statistics and statements were gathered in a survey in New York City, they are probably pertinent to most of the cities in the U.S.

45% of the teen street whores are boys. I think we forget how many are boys for reasons I'll get to later.
30% of the teen street whores have pimps. Thus, solely attacking the problem by attacking the pimp is not going to work.
15 the average age at which a boy or girl starts turning tricks on the street.

Clients
Rich
White
Male
The 1st and last makes sense, but why are there so few clients that are racial minorities? Smaller % than their population at large.

Whores
"damaged" The survey found that is the best way to describe 'em. Emotionally "damaged." "Damaged" by drugs, but in some way damaged.
"straight" If not the majority, a large plurality of the male teen street whores are not gay nor even bisexual but straight.
"off the street"  Most of the teen street whores are interested in getting off the street, or at least they express an interest on getting off the street.

Americans vs. Europeans
All of this is anecdotal evidence, from my readings, but . . . I do have a couple of wild and crazy ideas.

When American fiction writers of any kind write about teen street whores, most write about girls. Maybe because if they write about boys as teen street whores, which may be one of the reasons we don't think about teen boys as being street whores, their audiences will associate it with homosexuality, when often the two subjects are different things.

Europeans on the other hand, when they write about teen street whores, most write about boys. Maybe because boys make for better drama than girls. Also while I find both--using boys and girls--equally reprehensible, some European writers, not all European writers, but some European writers find using a boy for sexual purposes more reprehensible than using a girl for sexual purposes.

And one last thing that came out of this survey. We don't really know enough about the problem to deal effectively with the problem, and we need to learn more.

Next time: there are all kinds of bars.

Pale Male, the famed red-tailed hawk of Central Park, built his nest on Woody Allen's balcony across from the park, which, under Federal law, meant Allen was unable to make use of the balcony while the nest was there.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
