STEPHEN GREEN directs us to this story on smuggling dildoes into Texas. In Tennessee, I’m proud to report, both dildoes and guns are legal. If only New York and Texas could be as liberated.

Actually, there was an attempt to ban the sale of vibrators and dildoes in Tennessee a few years ago, but the morning-drive DJ’s (and a fictitious group named “Well Endowed Tennesseans”) spread the word that it was because the legislators sponsoring the bill were, ahem, insecure in their masculinity. It died a quiet death, and I’m told the sponsor still doesn’t like to talk about it.
