Not Sure What to Say About This Passing

Larry Flynt, the publisher of Hustler magazine, has died at 78.

A self described, “Smut peddler and 1st Amendment activist,” he was profoundly sleazy, but a significant part of the judicial precedent on free speech.

Also, where the rubber met the road, he had integrity, arguing against the execution of the man who shot and paralyzed him, and famously offered a million dollar bounty on sexual misconduct of members of Congress.

I have mixed emotions about him.
