Taking Out the Garbage

I'd like to applaud my friend, blogger-phenom, and councilman-extraordinaire Erick Erickson for taking on the task of ridding our city of this plague. I'm usually pretty wary of inviting government regulation of private enterprises, but one has to draw the line somewhere. I don't buy the libertarian charge that we should simply allow prostitution to thrive within our city limits. If the citizens of this community band together and decide that we don't want these businesses around, then we have the right to ban them. Let the courts decide if it's an afront to the Constitution. Prostitution is illegal, as is human-trafficking, and I'd love nothing more than to see the folks behind these companies taken down.
