“Laura, we have a virgin on line 1...”

I do not believe anybody in the Catholic blogosphere has posted this yet, in which case you get to hear it here first. Many of you have heard of the young woman who is auctioning off her virginity on eBay. It seems she has to pay for getting her masters degree in (brace yourself!) Marriage and Family Therapy. Out of over ten thousand bids, the highest is supposed to be around $3.7 million. Yes, you've heard about the auction. But have you heard... the interview???

It is apparent from her conversation with syndicated radio host Laura Ingraham, that 22-year-old "Natalie Dylan" has not thought this through very clearly. ("I’m not doing this to have sex, I’m doing this for the money.") The transsexual prostitute who calls into the show makes for an added bonus. This writer will let the sad commentary on the present human condition speak for itself (or in this case, HERself). One thing remains clear, though. You really can find anything -- and in this case, we do mean anything! -- on eBay.
