Consider what Stormy does to make a living

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion After viewing the interview of Stormy Daniels by Anderson Cooper on “60 Minutes,” I was shaking my head trying to understand what I had just seen. It reminded me of the ridiculousness of Sen. Orin Hatch grilling Clarence Thomas during his confirmation hearings talking about Long John Dong.This entire situation is entirely out of context. There should have been images all over the set of what she does for a living, albeit with a lot of black censor marks to cover up the images. Then we would have a better idea of what we are dealing with than some “poor me” dumbstruck blonde who is the victim of being taken advantage of by a big bad lawyer and his rich client.  Quite frankly it was like one boob asking another boob stupid questions about consenting adults having sex. Has 60 Minutes gone to the level of Jerry Springer?I’m going out on a limb here because I believe most people have no idea what goes on in the porn, oops, adult entertainment industry. It can be quite overwhelming to an individual experiencing it for the first time on DVD or the Internet. Having been in the video rental business for 24 years, and yes, we rented adult video movies, I know firsthand all about the business. First and foremost, it’s a money-making industry. If anyone on their right mind doesn’t believe that Stormy Daniels isn’t looking for a larger payday, then we weren’t watching the same interview.Do any of us really believe that a man, yes of the Donald Trump stature and reputation, could resist the temptation being alone in a hotel suite with a porn star? Oops, I meant to say adult film actress.Bob BeliveGlenvilleMore from The Daily Gazette:Foss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristslast_img read more

The agreement is not due to finish until the end of the 2023/24 campaign.last_img read more

Lance Stephenson gives Lakers a spark off the bench

Some of his mistakes have drawn animated responses from Walton; some have just drawn blank stares.Sign up for Home Turf and get exclusive stories every SoCal sports fan must read, sent daily. Subscribe here.But due to injuries (and Michael Beasley’s absence for personal reasons), the Lakers have needed to play Stephenson more minutes, perhaps what Walton had in mind when he said he was preparing to play “interesting” lineups before a recent game against Memphis. But Stephenson has repaid his faith so far.Stephenson was also one of the most composed players following the loss, saying he thought Harden made tough shots.With the Lakers headed to Charlotte still shorthanded, Stephenson was already looking forward to continuing his recent play. He believes the Lakers will quickly get back on track.“Just be aggressive, be in attack mode,” he said. “Play together, man, talk on defense. We’ve been doing a great job.” Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed HOUSTON — Even in a showdown between a pair of league MVPs, Lance Stephenson’s air guitar can make plenty of its own noise.The 28-year-old was back to making sweet music despite a 126-111 loss to the Rockets on Thursday night. He was one of only two Lakers bench players to score, pouring in 17 points for his first double-digit scoring night in nearly a month.Stephenson has been yo-yo-ing in and out of the rotation as much as any Laker, and on the last trip, Coach Luke Walton acknowledged it’s largely because of his turnovers – some of which stretch the imagination. But at least in Houston, Stephenson seemed to find an appropriate niche.“Being in attack mode,” he said. “Trying to make the easiest play possible, trying to get my teammates involved, just playing freely and trying to make no mistakes when I’m out there.” RONDO SEES HAND SPECIALIST, REMAINS IN L.A.The Lakers confirmed Thursday that Rajon Rondo (fractured right hand) saw a hand specialist in Los Angeles. The swelling that had to be drained on Sunday has gone down after the Lakers shut him off from activity earlier in the week, but he is scheduled to be evaluated again on Saturday before he can be potentially cleared for anything involving his hand. Rondo has been out of the lineup since Nov. 14, when he broke his hand in the fourth quarter of a game against Portland.Brandon Ingram (left ankle sprain) is still scheduled to be reevaluated on Saturday as well.Related Articles How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
