There was a store called Wild Oats. It is a grocery store. It sells a lot of organic food and hippy products.
It's founder today was arrested for child prostitution.
Over in Italy, Silvio Berlusconi is under investigation for hiring an 'underage prostitute'. I guess it sounds better to say you 'hired an underage prostitute', than 'being arrested for child prostitution'.
Both of those sound better than 'being a child molester'. Which is the truth.
Dave Attel once had a comedy bit about this. "I guess if you watch barely-legal porno, it means you are barely a pedophile".
Berlusconi's friend in his government made a statement. He said that Hitler did not drink or smoke, and Winston Churchill was a hard partier. I assume that we are supposed to think of Berlusconi as being Winston Churchill. I have heard of spin, but spinning child molestation into saving civilization from the Nazis is pretty much as fur as I think you can stretch something before it breaks.
Of course, Mr Berlusconi also helped Mr Bush in the PR spin for the Iraq War.
Lorella Zanardo has been trying to tell us, for years, that there was something wrong with this man. A video, translated into English by Serena Povia: Il Corpo Delle Donne.
I do not know what to make of the Wild Oats man. His main competitor, from Whole Foods, is a union-buster who would post anti-Wild-Oats rants anonymously on a investment-message-board. At least he wasn't a child molester.
I am glad, though, that they catch these people. The titans of industry, leaders of the community, all that shit, can be pictured as having to "take a seat there", and listen to Chris Hansen ask them questions on "To Catch a Predator", of NBC. I wonder if they have "To Catch a Predator" in Italy, on any of the TV stations that are owned by Mr Berlusconi and his associates?
