    :rofl: Hey, you never know. Maybe there's a reason Bill had to seek entertainment elsewhere. :wink:

    With a list of 10,000 clients, all with enough money to pay for $300 prostitutes, I bet there would be far more than just a few recognizable names on that list. Then again, why pay when you can get the interns for free? :uhh:

    Ooh, now it's up to 15,000 clients? Good time to be a divorce lawyer in D.C. (unless, of course, your name is on the list). :tongue2:

    Gone are the days when they could just buy up every copy of the paper before anyone sees their name on the list. :rofl: I'm sure the lesser known names will be safe...the papers can't print every single name, so will have to select just the highlights of the most notable on the list. Though, perhaps we shouldn't assume it's only men on the list.

    Since "up to" is "less than", to have 20 clients is to have up to 15000. In addition, 20 is an approximation of 15000.

    Well, the original article said "about 10000" so I figure that means they're now estimating somewhere over 10000 and under 15000. Of course, I don't know how many were dumb enough to give their real names.

    Hmm..a GOOD madam is an expert at getting the names of her clients whether she needs them or not.
    Or at least, she should be good at it.

    You mean how many were dumb enough to use a real phone number to call from and for her to call them back? Only the large number of phone records makes it hard for anyone to track back the identity of her clients.
