Trade alert

A report last week in the New York Daily News said Nevada brothels are “in danger of extinction” because of a poor economy and freelance competition from streetwalkers.

“When I started as the lobbyist for the industry in 1985, we had 37 brothels in the state,” Reno wedding chapel owner George Flint told the newspaper. “Now we have just 18, and 12 to 14 of them are not doing very well.”
