Quote Of The Day

by Doug Mataconis

A commenter at Megan McArdle’s blog on the prostitution angle of the Elliot Spitzer story:

Why is it illegal to sell, what it is perfectly legal to give away ;-)?

Excellent question.

  1. You mean like kidneys?

  2. Or, as one hard-core libertarian wag put it: prostitution is a combination of sex and free enterprise. Which one of those are you opposed to? :-)

  3. Kip,

    Sure. Why can’t you sell a kidney? As long as it’s your own, of course… You don’t have permission to sell MY kidney, which is what the socialists and politicians would expect to do!
