This one is for Tony Comstock
I’m gearing up to teaching my “Law And Society” (POL 203 at Mercer County Community College — there are still seats left for those in the Trenton/Princeton vicinity) course for the Spring ’11. We study, among other things, obscenity standards and the Miller v. California case.
Last time I taught the course, as a supplement, I showed the following clip from the Mike Douglas Show discussing Deep Throat with Rex Reed for whom I have the profoundest respect as a social critic.
There is also a formidable pro-Comstock laws advocate — indeed a professional censor — on the other side who I understand was a legend in her own right.
