Low and High Brow

I guess you could say this is another form of “Weiner Alert.” Not exactly a high-minded issue, but New York is a diverse city so I guess pols who’ve got their eye on the prize need to be all things to all people. (I wonder if he was influenced by Bloomberg’s cut cameo in the SATC movie. Or Huma.)

Weiner: Bring on hotties from overseas

….Weiner’s bill, first reported by Politico.com, would send models sashaying out of the prized H-1B category of visas and over to the easier-to-get P visas, mostly for entertainers and athletes.

Applicants can’t be just another pretty face, though. In language that only Washington bureaucrats could dream up, the legislation spells out the requirements for America’s next top non-American models.

An applicant must be “a fashion model of distinguished merit and ability” seeking to enter the U.S. temporarily “to perform fashion modeling services that involve events or productions which have a distinguished reputation.”

In other words, no pole dancers.

I’ve got nothing against fashion, but I definitely prefer Weiner at the other end of the issues spectrum—
