I have about as much interest in debating prostitution right now as I do in shaving my head with a rusty razor while chewing on tinfoil. There is a war on. Let us grasp a measure of imperialism (unless you are one of those who denies that such exists) so as to have a better understanding of how to defeat it. If we cannot do that, quit playing politics and go into show business.

Nothing personal kelley, but I'm inclined to be interested in only the relevant.
