Slow Gossip Day:

Mickey Kaus catches the New York Post gossip page passing along this gem:

WHICH single singer/songwriter has a dirty habit of picking up women when he's wasted? He's been spotted stumbling around downtown luring harlots back to his pad.

A single man getting drunk and picking up women? Now that's news.

(I take it that "harlot" is being used as a dysphemism for women who -- like the male singer/songwriter -- are willing to have sex with relative strangers, and not in the sense of prostitute; the "prostitute" meaning seems inconsistent with "luring," and for that matter with the generic term "picking up women," which usually means something other than "picking up prostitutes.")
