Nevada Senior Citizens Speak: Leave The Whores Alone
Looks like the old folks of Nevada are sticking up for the oldest profession known to humankind. Specifically, the Fogies of Fallon are not quite happy with plans to ban a local whorehouse:
"It's been 35 years since I've been in a brothel, so I don't have a personal stake in this," says Montie Pierce, a retired construction manager in Fallon. "But this is part of Nevada heritage. I'm tired of people who think they're in the Bible Belt telling the rest of us what to do."Amen, Fredda. But Montie, 35 years? Disappointing, dude. You clearly need to get out more.
Even more vociferous is Fredda Stevenson, owner of Old Middlegate Station, a desert bar and grill about 100 miles east of Reno. "Banning prostitution is a stupid idea," she declares. "Let it be. It's a service like anything else."
