Feds to demolish Mustang Ranch

End of an era: Feds to demolish Mustang Ranch.

"It would take too much money to rehabilitate the buildings because they're of shoddy construction. They certainly didn't pump their profits back into the buildings," Struble said.

It's a shame that even in Nevada prostitution isn't legal enough that people can build a real business out of it. I know someone who worked there a while ago, and it sure seems to me like building a venue where you could support your staff, not be afraid that someone is gonig to come raid your buildings in the middle of the night, so feeling like you couild invest in them, would be empowering for all involved.

Sounds like a business opportunity to me!

The first real conslutting service that's not tongue-in-cheek. Ok, maybe tongue-in-cheek if it's what the customer wants...

I've thought about it, but the problem is that while prostitution may be legal in some counties in Nevada, it's not unharrassed.

Good story. I hope they can save at least some of it.
