More publicity for SF prostitution decriminalization effort

Most prominently, as many of you know, Carol Leigh (aka Scarlet Harlot) was on the Bill O'Reilly show. Unfortunately he did not give her much time to address the issue, as she had to spend most of the scant time he let her talk during the segment trying to counter his insistence on regulation. Some of Carol's facial expressions as she's listening to O'Reilly blather on are priceless! Here is the link she posted, which also has a short segment from our press conference featuring independent congressional candidate Cindy Sheehan giving her support:

  The San Francisco Sentinel has a story on the measure that quotes Maxine as quoted by the Chronicle. Interestingly, the picture with the story depicts a young man on the street instead of a young woman for a change. Annoyingly, they also provide a link to SAGE, and do not allow comments on this story:

  A couple pieces in the libertarian blogosphere including from David Weigel of Reason Magazine focus on my role in the measure. The material isn't accurate in every particular (guess that's true for most of the coverage we've gotten, come to think of it), but any attention in places where the audience is likely to be supportive is a good thing...

  And a few more sightings of the AP wire story on the measure qualifying that I don't think made my last list, including in the SF Examiner and USA Today...,0,236257.story

  Also, unrelated to our effort but worthy of note, is a story from April about an attempt to legalize prostitution in the country of Kyrgyzstan:
