TAILPIPE TESTING AVERTED FOR NOW
Gee, a balanced, well-written newspaper story about the quest for a
Clean Air Plan. It's in the Seguin Gazette
continues search for solutions The Air Improvement Resources
Executive/Advisory Committee is exercising caution when it comes to
air quality control strategies.
The AACOG report
also showed emissions testing to be the most costly control strategy.
"My conclusion based on your data is that [emissions testing]
doesn't make sense," said Bexar County Judge Nelson Wolff. The
AIR technical committee presented a combination of other strategies
that would be less intrusive while achieving similar reduction levels.

the news Monday that the San Antonio area apparently can clean up
its air without implementing unpopular tailpipe tests.

Whore Not a Prostitute
San Antonio Express-News
tell escorts it's a risky business
San Antonio Express-News
service' work turns deadly
Kim Miller had been unemployed
for several months when she began to work for one of the
"dating services" touted in the adult sections
of classified ads.
You are being a real a*s. This woman has a child and this
is just terrible. I do not know why she did it, but it is
very sad. Sometimes talk radio hosts can be so almighty.
You should be ashamed of yourself.
I believe that today, speaking about the murdered lady who
worked for an escort service, you completely missed the
boat. People do different things for different reasons,
you do not know what her life was like. I, for one, would
do whatever is necessary to support my child, as would many
other women. Get off your high moral ground, it does not
become you, and makes you seem narrowminded and small. Merry
don't have to get money to be a prostitute. Women who have
sex with a man to have a dancing partner are prostituting
themselves; women who have sex with a man (or woman) to
get material things such as a house, beautiful clothes,
status or whatever are prostitutes. Living and having sex
with a man I didn't love (we were married) made me feel
like I was a prostitute...
I think you are teaching by example here. A wise student
of your teaching would be any young woman who is considering
going into prostitution "just for the money".
Many naive people try to define prostitution as a victimless
crime. Girls and women who consider this as a job should
be aware of two things: (1) Prostitutes always have the
possibility in their lives of being a victim, even when
they are not working. (2) Women who are prostitutes can
plan on being regarded by society as throwaway people...
Where is the commentary? I tried to click your comments
but it is cold.
I have made the Commentary link hot now. Thanks! 8:47 a.m.]
I have been reading these comments on the murdered "service
provider". Tragic as it is, the woman who said that
these people are considered "throwaway" is right
on the money. ... Exotic Dancers are prostitutes in a milder
form. They just enjoy the protection that a building provides.
Problem is that they have to go home sooner or later and
some nut could be waiting around the corner. The woman who
said that "This woman has children" and that you
were unfeeling needs a real dose of reality. Fact is, that
this woman (Kim) knew exactly what she was doing. She knew
it was easy money. She knew the risks (her sister told her).
She knew it was immoral. And on and on. Just because you
justify an immoral act with a moral need does NOT make you
On the subject of the prostitute mommy, I believe that you
were trying to make the statement that wrong is wrong no
matter the reason. I understand that. Just as it would be
wrong for a person to kill another in cold blood so that
their child might not be bullied anymore. If this mother
had not been murdered and we only saw her on the streets
attracting men as we drive our children to soccer practice,
we would not be so quick to feel sorry for her. It is horrible
for this child, but his mother made her choices and most
likely knew the risks. I also understand the need for people
to defend the underdog. I don't totally agree with putting
all this in the prositute's mother's face about her dead
daughter during Christmas. Let her believe what she needs
to deal with the grief of her daughter's death.
