Heh, had to re-read the headline 3x. Thought is said, “Soros arrested in child prostitution crackdown (150 arrested)”... damn, wish that was true.

It is a joint operation with Feds, state and locals. Not a show, an organized effort.

It’s nice to know that the FBI can still do something useful under Attorney General Holder.

Really? I was under the impression that they were all born that way, and we don’t have any right to judge who they fall in love with.

It's true ... every time I see a Super Bowl kick-off ... or the flag drops on the Indy 500 .. I get this incredible urge to violate a 12 year old.
