Yes, they killed the DC Madam. Another woman who was employed at the same escort service was arrested on prostitution charges and committed suicide before she could go to trial.

I know, I know, I live in the house that conspiracy theories built, but yes they killed the DC Madam. "She left two suicide notes," just ain't making it for me. All those pompous ass, family values boys were afraid of getting outed. Come on.

Rest in peace, Deborah Jeane Palfrey. I hope you were running a second set of books and a really good friend knows where they are and where the key is.

In other news - three darling citizens of Lesbos who have nothing better to do, have sued a local GL organization for use of the word "lesbian". One guy said his sister can't say she's a Lesbian because her identity has been usurped by "certain ladies." Whom I'd like to meet.

Have an ouzo and calm down. Get your chitron out of the twist. You are so last century. The kids have already moved on to queer and questioning and transitioning. And I still know women who wouldn't say lesbian if their mouths were full of one.

FYI Lesbos is also known as the island of Mytilene, so from now on I'd like to be known as a mytilene-feminist. Efcharisto very much.

And another thing. I am denouncing my pastor. Actually, I denounce all pastors.

The conspiracy theory-esque thought of assissins planting suicide notes is a scary one indeed. But even the official story is only slightly less infuriating.

They killed her, for sure. The misogyny that creates a class of sexual objects, the economic systems that creates a need for sex work, the politicians who exploit sex workers for family values votes, and the prison system that's designed to punish and terrorize instead of rehabilitate.

I still can't figure out how all those politician clients of hers can give a press conference, a manufactured apology, keep their job, and never face and charges. Meanwhile, everyone goes after the women involved as if they are out for blood. And they got it.

I don't think it's conspiracy theory territory to take a closer look at her suicide. I'm sure there are a lot of powerful people who were happy to hear the news...

Kate;
As one of the "Women formerly known as Lesbians"
I loved your post. We radical Mytelinistas will have our say, Sis!

As for Ms Palfrey, She was killed, one way or the other by outside forces. I imagine that her book would look like a "Who's Who" of Value Voter endorsed candidates.

two suicide notes? really really really, I mean to kill myself.

really.

all I can say is she must have had some serious dirt about some bizarre behavior of some high level person because let's face it, sex scandals are a dime a dozen.

Mytilene? I'm sorry. I'm too old to change. or question. or transition.

The other lady was also a active duty Navy Officer and she found she was going to be cortmartialed in addtion to her other civil charges against her she ended it all.Sad way to go but I do feel for those who feel they have to take there own life.

I read about Lebos and there law suit owell life moves on.

Pastors I aint got one then im Heathen just me and the Gods:).

That Lesbos/lesbian thing is such a publicity stunt. It's only been how many years now that lesbians have been, well, lesbians? I think the statute of limitations has expired.
