From the SF Chronicle: IT'S THE LADIES' SHOW NOW: Lusty Lady becomes the first worker-owned strip club in the nation. The women of the Lusty Lady, who were also the first strip club to unionize, have bought out the old owners and are now running the business wearing nothing but lipstick and a smile.
One dancer is a lawyer. Delinqua said the woman always wanted to be an artist, and practicing law "made her feel like a whore." Now she dances naked for a living.Here's an entertaining article from Today's San Jose Mercury News:

And, finally, an article from Alternet (courtesy of my friend, Nan): The Invisible Writers. The lesson of the article: "To write, even in obscurity is worthwhile." I'll try to keep that in mind. From the article, I'll end with this quote:
"Fiction completes us, mutilated beings burdened with the awful dichotomy of having only one life and the ability to desire a thousand"
