Scandal of the Day
Max Mosley, the president of the FIA [Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile], has said that he spoke in German during a sado-masochistic orgy with five prostitutes not because he was fantasising about being a Nazi but because several of the prostitutes involved were German speakers.
I'm glad that Mosley cleared that up. Gorman goes on to write—
The News of the World alleged that Mosley, who is facing calls to resign from one of the most powerful jobs in motor sport, spanked at least one prostitute with a leather strap and counted out the strokes in German as he did so. The paper claimed that this was evidence of a Nazi-style fantasy on the part of Mosley and it also alleged that the FIA president engaged in role play as a concentration camp inmate during the five-hour orgy in a West London flat last Friday.
Damn! Why are British sex scandals always so entertaining? I feel almost embarrassed by America's lack of innovation in the field.
What will it take for us to catch up? Some feel the effort may require a rigid class system and private school education. The Republicans have been working on it.
