    AMSTERDAM, Netherlands (AP) - Amsterdam unveiled plans Saturday to close brothels, sex shops and marijuana cafes in its ancient city center as part of a major effort to drive organized crime out of the tourist haven. The city is targeting businesses that "generate criminality," including gambling parlors, and the so-called "coffee shops" where marijuana is sold openly. Also targeted are peep shows, massage parlors and souvenir shops used by drug dealers for money-laundering.

    We're just at the point where San Francisco is leading the effort to legalize prostitution. Why don't we just learn from Europe's experience, which indicates that prostitution attracts crime. Or will we just have to learn the hard way?
