If you have "no place to go," come here!


OK, we were wrong on Vitter (R-Canal Street Brothel) and the diapers. But he took the used condoms with him after "encounters"?!

New Orleans Advocate:

Ex-prostitute tells Hustler of Vitter encounters
Vitter used condoms and engaged in straight sex, “no weird fetishes or anything like that,” [Wendy] Ellis says in the magazine.

Ellis says Vitter did one thing, though, that none of her other clients did; he took his used condoms with him.

When Did You Learn That Lies Were Wrong?

So it's Nephew Weekend for me (yeah!) and we're sitting here watching The Day the Earth Stood Still (What is it about 50s movies that make them so perfect for young kids?
