Abstract

In this letter to the editor, the writer claims the only reason that indecent literature remains on newsstands is because publishers and distributors are making a profit. She decries those who use the First Amendment and the fear of censorship as a shield against being prosecuted for selling indecent reading materials, and states that the ones who are having their rights infringed upon are those who have to see this filth on newsstands.
