Must be a slow news day, nothing else to talk about besides the electioneering.
It's made the international press, as well. I've seen articles about it in two British papers.

IF she is a prostitute, she hardly appears to living the life of those hanging out on city corners trying to earn enough for their next heroin hit. And girls, don't get too smug, there could be some lady johnettes amongst her clients, or in her video collection (whichever this turns out to be). I wonder what they are telling their husbands?

Been on the nightly news a number of times, and I don't mean the local news. So if people in Kennebunk don't know about it, they don't watch the national news. It's been on the morning shows as well as the evening shows.

There's been stories about it, sure, but it just doesn't seem to be something people are getting into a big flap about, except for some parents who were concerned because their kids would see it in the paper when looking for articles for school.
Now that the case has come to trial there are finally several stories in our local paper.
Seacoast Online - York County Coast Star.
I think I recall reading something a couple weeks ago about her working previously as a model in Portland before starting the zumba class next to the pizza place. Being a hooker sure would pay better than teaching a zumba class I bet. She's not really good looking enough to be a success as a model.
Word's out that there are quite a few lawyers and doctors on her client list. When the news broke quite a few folks said they felt that there had been something fishy going on at the site for some time.

It just occurred to me. If this had happened in a place like Bugtussle Georgia, or Numnuts Oklahoma, it probably wouldn't have made any kind of a splash in the media at all.
It's all so small potatoes.

We do not get TV however we have still heard plenty about this via the WWW.

Default It's Hardly News....but....

Just saw coverage on CNN.....it does seem a bit much. I think the town of Kennebunk and its association with the Bush compound on Kennebunkport...fuels the interest. But then Payton Place about a small NH town ....became a sensation.....sex sells....books and newspapers and cable news apparently.

Cool off and buy a People magazine.

BTW, none of this is directed at this particular poster, but those screaming to see the names.
That's exactly right - she has been "accused" just like the johns she purportedly provided services for.

Everyone who is arrested and plastered all over the local paper (with the only exception being juveniles) is "accused" and not "convicted." I find it highly ironic that the superintendent of the school district asked the teachers to be diligent about watching for bullying of the johns' kids when the list came out. Does this happen for anyone else accused of a crime? I think not.

The difference in this case is that the "accused" johns run the possibility of being "fine upstanding citizens - pillars of their community...fine family men/women..." blah, blah, blah. You know, the ones who more than likely spend every Sunday in church expounding the lack of moral turpitude in today's society by tsk tsking such 'moral decay' as gay marriage, and criticizing single mothers, drug addict welfare drainers, etc., etc.

I agree that we should let the legal process work before we get too much into a lather, but I do believe that eventually that list should be published - regardless of who's on it.
