It's that time of year again to take stock of many things. One that always interests me is "How much $$$ did I spend on escorts this year?"

 

2007 was comparitivly conservative for me - just a shade under three grand. Anyone else care to divulge?

It is the costs of air travel and hotels, that burns the biggest hole in the pockets!

But it is like doing charity much of the time.

You just hope it is going for a GQQD cause!

ncm, you made me laugh on that one!

 

FYI-

A survey focused on 69 U.S. cities with populations of 250,000 or above. Jack Miller of Central Connecticut State University chose six key indicators to rank literacy. These included newspaper circulation, number of bookstores, library resources, periodical publishing resources, educational attainment and Internet resources.

 

 

Overall, the top 10 most literate (and wired) cities included:

 

 

1—Minneapolis, Minn.

2—Seattle, Wash.

3—St. Paul, Minn.

4—Denver, Colo.

5—Washington, D.C.

6—St. Louis, Mo.

7—San Francisco, Calif.

8—Atlanta, Ga.

9—Pittsburgh, Pa.

10—Boston, Mass

Is that how much is left in the wallet or how much flew out this year. My guess is that is the amount that flew out. $300 a day every day for the year.

My expenditures were less but still way too much for my income. Think I probably spent 90% of my discretion income.

Please explain your post. I am frankly lost. x(

 

As for my post responding to Chuck50, let me assure you, many here "got it." NOW, whether they liked it or not is something else. But I've tried to establish a reputation here for detesting hypocrisy, and I call it like I see it. }(

Just be careful that your personal crusade does not violate the MC rules about personal information. That can get a girl voted off the island. x(

Obviously there are flaws in the methodology. I used to live in Atlanta----nothing but chain bookstores (or Christian ones); the gay bookstore devotes half its space to coffee; a crappy library system, I hardly ever used my card; and people who work in the airport can't tell you how to find the train that has a terminal at the airport. A non-hip place like Pittsburgh has more business being on this list.

Brother Glutes, many thanks for pointing that out. :D

 

And, I also wish it were true - with respect to the "being wired" part. Mpls chose to go wifi and the company to whom they awarded the contract is now umpteen months behind schedule. That's annoying by itself, but when you factor in the intent of the Bushies to damn near mandate a communications oligarchy (presumably headed up by "You're Doing a Heckuva Job, Brownie"), the result is likely to be (a) worse service (due to less competition), and (b) worse program choices - due to less competition. One despairs and dreams of an European (esp. French) communications system which (a) is cheaper than the US, (b) is superior in communications technology, and © is damn near flawless for consumers.

 

It's there. Will the US Congress have the guts to have at it?

Well, MikeBiDude.

 

I sent you a private message asking you to clarify your accusations about me. I have had no response. Perhaps you haven't been back here to take a look (or checked your email) - fair enough.

 

Take your time dude, clear your thoughts and chill a bit. If you choose to respond with specifics about the activities you allege about me, I look forward to hearing and seeing them. Oh, and I DO mean specifics. Repeating a Northern Virginian's drunk talk does not meet the test.

 

Please don't wait. The longer you delay, the greater the stench grows around your "meat." }(
