Another Smut Purveyor Coddled


This time, it is the Rehoboth Beach Film Society in Delaware that will face no sanction for its filth peddling. An upright citizen brought the Society's showing of films with explicit sex to the attention of state authorities. A thorough investigation by the state police's vice unit, however, failed to result in any charges -- this despite the fact that the citizen noted reviews of one of the movies, Cacharro (Bear Cub), which indicated that gay sex was depicted. Sure, the film has won various international film awards, but that does not mean that we should allow adults in Delaware to see it. But really, it's not so much about the adults, it's the children we are concerned about, don't you know. Sure, children were not admitted to the dirty movies -- but one or two could have snuck in! Better safe than sorry -- but not according to the wild libertine Attorney General of Delaware, who is willing to allow trashy films to be hawked to adults, ignoring the risk that some innocent might evade the age controls and suffer irreparable damage.
