the problem of defining The court It was not its finest The case was Brockett Spokane decided June The opinion provides fresh confirmation of a view I often have expressed that the way to get at the evils of pornography is not through laws that punish Every attempt to define and to punish obscenity results in a march into the murky swamps of the First So it was in the case at In 1982 the state of Washington adopted a moral nuisance The act undertakes to punish the sale or exhibition of lewd The statute says that lewd matter is synonymous with obscene and it defines obscene matter as matter on the appeals to a prurient interest in sexual the act defines prurient matter as that which incites lasciviousness or Note the or Four days after the statute became a group of dealers in x rated stuff

aroused merely normal lust were declared the next step would be to prosecute dress per fumers and manufacturers of soft soap suds and Defining prurient in terms of lasciviousness or the Washington

voice comes to mind when 1 read about the adventures of Mel the dreamer who wouldnt give up until he found the great Spanish treasure on the ocean Not that Usher has much in common with the personality Fred the Bogart who went into the mountains of Mexico to hunt fora legendary lost gold Bogart was as is But his obsession was based on a greed that finally drove him by most is a genuinely nice guy who seems driven more by the joy and adventure of the search as by the promise of groat But there is one similarity to the stories of Fred Dobbs and Its found in villians who threatened to steal what they had In the case of the villians were the local who werent sure what Dobbs and his companion but they wanted it and were willing to use their guns to get In Fishers the villians have been the governments of the state of Florida and the United States of whose weapons are appeals and other weapons that can be far nastier than any Florida came Almost from the beginning of Fishers more than two decades state lawyers made a decision that borders They decided that anything Fisher found belonged to the state of Florida because it was in waters that they considered to be under the states none of these lawyers had ever sunk all of their savings into a pleaded with investors for put on a diving suit and gone to the bottom of the sea to look for lost Spanish None had risked their lives in had a boat capsize under seen a son and a daughterin law die during the Until Fisher came and began making scattered the lawyers probably shared the belief of most people that the search for the legendary Spanish treasure was a fools But as soon as Fisher showed there was gold to be they jumped right Not in the In the They were representing the state of Which means the not the gators or

and with no help from the govern is going out into the ocean and risking his life looking for lost If he finds do you think that you are entitled to a share The answer would have surely been Are you crazy Hell If hes got the moxie to look for why should we steal it from him But they didnt And armed with their yellow legal pads and fountains they did all they could to heist Fishers The Dillinger gang was never more there are a few judges with common and they finally slapped down Floridas lawbook bandits and said Fisher could keep what he Then along came the federal governments decided that what a man through his own wit and doesnt belong to It belongs to the And not just the portion that would be collected in taxes which in itself is They wanted almost all of because they said the ocean
