re: (2nd part of 5th paragraph from bottom): "We're beginning with Craigslist because it's the biggest and one of the most apparent -- and frankly, one of the more cooperative. They've been cooperative from the early stages of our investigation."
now, *that's* funny... isn't he the same guy who said: (3rd paragraph): "I'm astonished and appalled by Craigslist's refusal to recognize the reality of prostitution on it's Web site - despite advertisements containing graphic photographs and hourly rates, and widespread public reports of prostitutes using the site" also...(4th paragraph) "[craigslist] has a moral if not possible legal responsibility to assure that it avoids serving as a conduit for prostitution and other illegal activity. My office will weigh all options, including possible legal action, if the site fails to curb content clearly prohibited by its rules."
P.S. I shudder imaging what kind of response does Blumenthal get from those ... not as cooperating as craigslist... must be something like this: "Get lost, Rick! go bother someone else, ok?" :) D.
