Jeesh. I did hear a rumor she kissed an Arab sheik for fifty thousand. This woman is solid proof that there was no murder of Diana.

They talk about Victorian women being forced by circumstances into a life of prostitution. Heck, the modern ones do it for a song; probably because they enjoy it.

£6,500 is a little more than $10,000. For postage?

Tell me another.

I wonder if the Queens Special Service involves hand delivery by a footman or something similar...:^)
