Utah About to Sign Library Filtering Law

For a work to be declared obscene, it must fit several criterion:

0) First off, the work must be considered as a whole. Either the entire work is obscene or it is not at all. Playboy has articles, doesn't it? They are usually not very obscene.

1) It must appeal to the prurient interest in a patently offensive way. Pictures of Nekkid ladies is not *patently* offensive. Anyone who has ever had sex should not really have any reason to say that what is depicted in Playboy is patently offensive.

2) It must be devoid of any literary, scientific, artistic or political value. Playboy has all of these.
