Monday Reads

  1. In Mexico City there is a shelter for elderly sex workers.  A photographer has documented their lifestyle and it is rather facinating.
  2. It's strange to think about trading people and the value we thereby place on lives, but that's exactly what just happened as President Obama offered up five Taliban prisoners at Guantanamo Bay in return for for Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, a U.S. soldier captured in Afghanistan and held as a prisoner of war.
  3. The Beverly Hills Hotel is iconic and forever set in my mind as the site of Troop Beverly Hills' epic campout.  It's currently being boycotted because it's owned by the Sultan of Brunei who recently enacted Sharia Law in his country.  I don't agree with such policies and I certainly wouldn't pay $25 for a salad with a side of implicit support - good for them for taking a stand.
  4. Since everyone is currently binge watching "Orange is the New Black" you should better understand the difference between jail and prison.  Yes, there is a difference, but if you're confused you can just call it The Big House.
