I've been busy on a project. In truth, I've been trying to get my draftsmanship chops back, and it ain't easy.
Briefly: I'd like to hear from my readers about the $5000-a-night call girl from Russia who is at the center of the new Eliot Spitzer scandal. Interesting story
-- and it certainly has a funky odor: The fact that Svetlana changed her story sets off all sorts of alarms. Could this whole thing might be a set-up? Perhaps -- but if so, why?
Spitzer hasn't exactly been on anyone's radar lately. His political career seems to be over, and I'm not sure that he can ever revive his television career.
I once had a long conversation with a former $3000-a-night escort. (No, not as a client. Actually, she
wanted to hire me
-- as a draftsman.) I probably should not say this, but -- in my estimation -- she was more attractive than Svetlana.
The lady with whom I spoke told me why a high-priced escort of her class can get away with charging ten times more than the average hooker. Beauty per se
is not the deciding factor. The great secret: The four-figure escort never seems like a sure thing
. "Always act as though you are on the verge of saying 'No,'" she told me. "Men don't want to hear 'No,' but they pay a lot for the possibility
of that 'No.'"
