This thread is a sure sign of Spring! Cabin fever is ragging all over the lower 48.
The trouble I see with our modern LEO's is that they spend too much time in the arm pit of America and regardless of the personality of the individual the slim tends to rub off on them. That's not to say they are bad but that their perspective is tainted by the folks they have to police.

Can't we all just get along?

It's one thing to disagree about a piece of art. It's another to draw conclusions about a person based on that opinion. To categorize anyone not offended by the pictures as "sickos"--as Leary did--is casting the first stone.

Now, I'm not going to draw any conclusions about Leary based on his rather puritanical notions of "soft core porn." I'm also not going to presume he holds those opinions because he's a former cop. Honestly, I don't know if he was an inner-city sex crimes detective for 25 years or a traffic cop in East Podunk, NM, where he averaged a felony arrest per year. As far as I'm concerned, if he doesn't like the programming here, had can change the channel.

I've lived long enough to take any moralistic finger-wagging with a shovel of salt. All too often, the people barking the loudest about the decay of morals are those who end up in a mugshot, busted for doing exactly what they were railing against. When it comes to art, prurience is most often in the mind of the viewer, not in the art itself. And if you want evidence of that point, I give you millions of family photo albums where small children are photographed in the tub.

I think it's a funny thread for all the people that say they are done with it, but keep coming back. Just can't look away.

This thread seems to serve no useful purpose other than for folks to violate our "Play Nice" rules. I have closed it.
