Amsterdam bans Red Light District tours

funniest thing isn't the headline...but the Alderman's name
"We do not consider it appropriate for tourists to leer at sex workers," city alderman Udo Kock, who proposed the bill, said in a statement.

Aldermand Kock-blocks sex-workers

Veteran stand-up comedian Ian Cognito has died on-stage - literally. The audience thought it was part of the act. Died with his boots on. Thats commitment to comedy. Ill never forget his kindness when I started out & how god damn funny he was.
