Headline of the Day

From the February 18th Telegraph (U.K.):
Swiss prostitutes trained to use defibrillators in brothels to prevent clients dying
(via The Corner)

Well, Zurich's back on my list, then.

The headline illustrates how our mental images can dominate our thinking. It had never occurred to me that there are prostitutes in Switzerland. But of course, every society has prostitutes.

I'll bet they're efficient, but a little aloof.

Yes, and in many cases, the vast majority of them are politicians.

Do they need health insurance for the jolt? Do they just let them die, if they don't have health insurance?
