Thus far, it’s been very instructive – there’s a broad range of lectures, everything from how to handle those homosexuals to what’s to be done about gambling.
There was also a porno flick (well, almost a porno flick) and a display of seized goods – among them a pneumatic vagina.
All that hardcore info and those little touches really kept their attention.

“In response to a question from the floor, following a discussion of obscene printed material, Officer Shaidell said, “Yes, we get every issue of the Free Press and we’re conducting a continuous investigation of it.

“We are getting ready soon to go to the City Attorney and ask him to file an obscenity complaint against the Free Press.”
Remember, you read it here first. 😊
