Where there’s a willy, there’s a way

Two extracts from a recent Harper’s Review. The first says something about commodity fetishism that perhaps Marx had not intended. The second just says something …

… a Louisiana man told police he exposed his penis to a
Ford because he’s aroused by Walmart.

A Texas jury sentenced religious
fundamentalist Warren Jeffs to life in prison for
sexually assaulting two girls, aged 12 and 15, who
numbered among his 78 wives. A prison guard said Jeffs
has been masturbating continuously when not in court,
despite eating “[barely] enough to stay alive.”

And I can’t help quoting this bit from the same Review even though this kind of thing is dreary in its frequency and predictability:

Phillip Hinkle, an antigay Republican state representative from Indiana, was discovered to have offered cash to an 18-year-old man in exchange for spending the night, plus a tip for a really good time.
