Every once in awhile, I come across a headline that elicits a laugh. This one from the Drudge Report may not be my all-time favorite: Dead brothel owner wins... But it is awfully good.
It happened in Nevada, where Dennis Hof, the owner of the Love Ranch and other destination spots, passed away on 16 October, and the citizens residing in his rural state assembly district preferred him dead to Lesia Romanov, his Democratic opponent, alive. I suspect that, had I lived in the district, I, too, would have voted for the deceased.
He was apparently a well-known figure. Here is what the local NBC affiliate had to say:
He also starred in the HBO adult reality series “Cathouse” and wrote a book titled “The Art of the Pimp,” akin to Trump’s book “The Art of the Deal.” . . . His body was discovered by porn actor Ron Jeremy and a prostitute at the brothel. Hof had spent the four previous days partying with notables from the sex industry and political world celebrating his 72nd birthday.
Hof had run before as a Libertarian, but he was attracted into the Republican Party by our current President. My view is that they should embalm the body and install it at a desk in the state house. The man is likely to do less harm than anyone who regularly sits at any of the other desks.
