: most of you who know my mom (catherine) know what sort of websites
: run for a living. right now, there's a bit of a shakedown going on
: with the billing companies, and everyone who runs sites such as
: is about to have to fork over $750 to visa if we want to continue
: be allowed to accept visa. yucky, but it's a business expense and
: i'm gritting my teeth and mailing it out.

Paypal will let you accept any credit card you want with only a small
per-transaction fee. I'd say Unprintable Things to Visa and go
through Paypal or some other similar site.

: so . . . . what if something similar happened to all of you?
: a hypothetical situation: tomorrow, you find out that all henna
: artists must have licenses. this license costs $500, and you will
: to jail if you operate without one. you have one month to come up
: with this money.
: what do you do?

I ignore it. I can't afford that. I already have to ignore certain
other "mandatory" expenses that I'll be in big trouble if anyone
finds out about. Selling and applying henna keeps my family above
water, but barely.
