I'm not exactly sure what I imagined, but it wasn't this.The San Francisco Chronicle
ran a profile yesterday of Deborah Jeane Palfrey, the D.C. madam who has threatened
to go public with her high-flying clients' names. Apparently Palfrey ran her business from her home in California, where she kept what you might call a low profile:
Palfrey has lived in Vallejo since 1991, when she purchased her house. Neighbors described her as a recluse who kept her blinds closed and came outside only to feed other people's cats...
The only real communication anyone in the neighborhood had with her was when she called the police and fire departments on her next-door neighbor, Michelle Gandley, who had put out tiki lamps for a Hawaiian luau party....
Palfrey's other house is adjacent to a country club and golf course in Escondido and is for sale for $439,000. Her neighbors there also described her as reclusive and unfriendly.
"I don't think she is a people person," said Lois Weldon, who lives nearby.
