Banned Books and Blockbusters

“Contrary to what, Googling around, you might assume, obscenity is not protected by the First Amendment. “There is a bone in my ***** six inches long. I will ream out every wrinkle in your ****.” Those sentences are from the opening pages of Henry Miller’s first novel, “Tropic of Cancer,” which was published in France in 1934. Are they obscene? It took thirty years, but American courts eventually decided that they are not, and therefore the book they appear in cannot be banned.” (via The New Yorker)

Editors Note: I added the * to the post. The actual article has the dirty words.
