Is it time to decriminalize prostitution? Two New York bills answer yes in unique ways

Today in the majority of the United States, it is a crime to sell sex, buy it, or promote its sale. The Sex Trade Survivors Justice & Equality Act would decriminalize prostitution in New York state while maintaining punitive measures against buyers and pimps. Opponents suggest this law would only push the illegal sex trade further underground and seek full decriminalization for everyone involved. Although incorrectly labeled the world's oldest profession, prostitution has been on the minds of l...

"The original cast of 'The Real World: New York' recently wrapped filming in their original loft at 565 Broadway..."

"... a source close to production confirmed to Page Six on Thursday after much speculation" (NY Post).  Great. I love "The Real World" — at least as it was in the first 3 or 4 seasons. I dropped out after that. The new season will have the cast from the first season, now almost 30 years older. I think when I dropped out of the viewership it was because the people were too young. I started out maybe 10 years older, but that thing went on for 33 seasons. When the people are 20 — or 30 or 40 (!) ...

The increase in calls to helplines is a good sign, as lawyers suffer from mental health, alcohol and drug issues at greater rates than the general population. Lawyers on lockdown should be lauded for reaching out for help. With vaccines being deployed, so...

Why Can’t The Legal Function Prove Its Value?

The legal function is oft-derided, and for many good reasons that have stood the test of time. But with the advent of digital transformation, which is affecting all industries, legal services are being reverse-engineered by customers to best suit their needs.  Whether a lawyer is an in-house counsel, one working for a non-profit, or one of the multitudes in private practice, attention must be paid to the radical transformation that the legal function is undergoing. Indeed, the very value of lega...

Thanks for not breaking our heart.

I set out in the snow to do my sunrise run, and I made it to my vantage point, which looked like this:   No sun to see. 100% overcast. And the snow wasn't stuck to the trees, so no "winter wonderland" effect. Just deep snow on the ground, making the run something of a trudge. But as I approached my vantage point, down along the shore, I saw a man and woman up ahead, and they'd slowed down and were slowing stamping about.  I had to overtake them, and my normal method is to get as far ...

Ella Emhoff, the style icon.

I totally approve. The best of the inauguration (Daily Mail).So grimly fun and playfully in-your-face. I feel resonance with the old hippie movement.Emhoff is a design student at Parsons so it must be presumed that this is all quite intentionally, not just something she geekily stumbled into. Ah, yes: Speaking to Vogue, Ella, who is in her final year at the Parsons School of Design in New York, explained how she had the bespoke look made. 'My mood board was very “little girl,” in a sense, a l...

With flexible work arrangements likely to remain or even increase once the pandemic is behind us as companies realize cost-savings, efficiencies and the ability to tap talent across the Country, lawy...

William Gibson — deploying the old "grocer's apostrophe" — says something inscrutable about Nazis and the Space Force.

How was it, given fascism's theoretical predilection for kitsch, that the Nazi's generally had such strongly stylin' uniforms? Could it all have been Hugo Boss?— William Gibson (@GreatDismal) December 29, 2020 [Author: [email protected] (Ann Althouse)]
