Slow down ahead

And I do not refer to the fact that my blogging is going to slow down after next week since I am headed to India for 6 weeks. It seems the downturn in the economy has led to a belt-tightening in the sex industry (there is a joke somewhere in there -- in use of word 'belt tightening' - but I'm not at my wittiest mood right now and leave Leno-Letterman-Stewart-Conan to their night jobs!)
Sex industry slows
Brothel owners in Europe and the United States say belt-tightening is undermining a once-lucrative industry.
And another related news about economy hurting a segment of the population :)
Rich Cut Back on Payments to Mistresses
You know times are tough when the rich start cutting costs on their mistresses.According to a new survey by Prince & Assoc., more than 80% of multimillionaires who had extra-marital lovers planned to cut back on their gifts and allowances. Still, only 12% of the multimillionaire cheaters said they plan to give up on their lovers altogether for financial reasons.
Oh...the worries of being rich! ;)

Also... not related to economy but...
Amsterdam to halve shop window brothels and marijuana cafes
Amsterdam will on Monday unveil plans to clean up the city's old town and red light district by halving the number of shop window brothels and cafés where marijuana is sold legally.
Sigh...what is the world coming to! ;)
