(Houston, TX)  —  Residents say the weak economy is prompting a positive change in their Houston neighborhood.  Independence Heights neighborhood activist John Branch told KHOU-TV that prostitutes have left the neighborhood as they don’t have their usual customers.  Experts including Kathryn Griffin, who runs a prostitute rehabilitation program called “We’ve Been There Done That” say the poor economy has prompted prostitutes to leave the streets.  Branch says quote, “There used to be eight or nine prostitutes fighting on the corner.  You don’t see that anymore and that’s a good thing.”
