I wonder how the city defines prostitution. If it is accepting excessive amounts of funds to {censored by sender} a person or persons, then the city of Lubbock Utilities should be raided for the same charges. Even charging as little as $30.00 to talk to an LP&L payment arrangement call girl for a couple of minutes to satisfy a customer looks like a {censored} business operation from my perspective.
