It was in Storey County, Nevada until the feds shut down Joe Conforte's
Mustang Ranch a few years ago.

that shut it down was the IRS and the charge was tax evasion and the
IRS continued to run it for a while. There was even a "60 minutes"
story on it while it was being run by the IRS (I suspect that the
embarrassment of finding that the US government was running a bordello
had something to do with its being shut down).
And Mustang Ranch is back in operation under new ownership--the land
it was on belongs to the Bureau of Land Management now so the new
owners moved the buildings about 5 miles down the road.

True. NY just raised theirs. 'Sin taxes' are promoted as being for the

But it *is* a wonder sometimes. When tobacco sales drop because people
start to buy from 'native american reservations', the politicians aren't all
upset because people are still smoking. The headline is all about 'lost tax
revenue'. Not about the risks and health hazards.

I live in Fl. I had my home replumbed a few yrs ago and the pipes are
in the attic. They wrapped the "cold" water pipe with foam rubber in
case of condensation.
I have to wait FOREVER to get cold water to flow, because the water
sitting in that "cold" water plastic pipe (I assume it's PEX) even
with the foam wrapped around it heats up and gets VERY hot.
I would NEVER purposely plumb a home like that. Hell, I can't even
wash clothes with cold water!
