Letter to NP

Friday's 75-words-or-less NP question was what to do about prostitutes. My suggestion:

The question is not what we should do about prostitutes; rather, the question is what should be done about the johns. Most will agree that prostitution is a miserable job to which few happily aspire and that society would be better without it. Arrest, fine, and jail johns as abusers of the vulnerable. Eradicate the demand and the supply will
wane. It’s economics 101. And then help the prostitutes left without their customers.
