I heard from a guy who knows somebody that Althouse's latest post was written from a whorehouse in Budapest. It is rumored she went to do some research but stayed for the fabulous breakfast bar. Could that be true? If it is, I find her actions deplorable. I don't believe it personally, but I think everyone has the right to know that my irresponsible friend thinks she's turning tricks for crepes. Does anyone have any evidence she's not? Would she tell us if he did?
But I'd have an easier time believing she's actually selling guns to our nation's enemies, which was also suggested by someone who has absolutely no evidence, but thinks such a story bears repeating. Who would know about such a coverup and how could we ever shake the truth out them?
I dunno, maybe she's just in hiding after all that money she might have embezzled when she was allegedly working as a mob fixer. That's what I heard in a restaurant bathroom the other night, anyway. Probably not true, but worth questioning, right? Because if it were true, that would be awful.
Honestly I don't believe any of these unsubstantiated stories, but I'll defend to the death my right to repeat them on the internet, as long as I continue to point out that I have no reliable source for them and I would never suggest they are anything but vague possibilities. It might be irresponsible - despicable even- but it's important that such questions be asked, so as not to stifle debate.
