The Next Fad in Privatization?

And please let’s not hear any state that uses a lottery to tap vices, parlay poverty, and avoid community responsibility for important functions argue that this shouldn’t be considered here. As the old joke says, we’ve established what those states are, we’re just haggling over price.

A Chilean prostitute has auctioned 27 hours of sex to raise money for the country's largest charity during an annual fund-raising campaign.

Maria Carolina became an overnight celebrity in the conservative Roman Catholic country, making news headlines and appearing on talk shows since she made her unusual donation to the televised charity event, which runs for 27 hours starting on Friday evening.

"I've already auctioned off the 27 hours of love," Maria Carolina told Reuters on Wednesday, saying she had raised about $4,000. "One of my clients already paid. It seemed like a good deed to him."
