Reader: To hell with dating -- because an escort service provides more value for the dollar

Our May item about a prostitution ring allegedly run through high-end strip joints by Germaine Wallace has continued to generate comments about big pimpin' and services rendered.

Among the standouts was the post comparing escorts to dates.

Rick and Alice write:

Man, I knock no one. Get it how you live baby... I've rented an escort myself, best 200 dollar an hour investment of my life. I'd rather get what I pay for instead of dating.
