WAL-MART BANS CLEAVAGE
As numerous sites have linked, Wal-Mart has banned Maxim and two related magazines from its stores. I think this policy is silly, but respect the right of a private business to make these decisions. What amuses me is that Nadine Stossen and the ACLU are siding with Wal-Mart on this one. While they are very consistent in their opposition to almost any sort of governmental restriction on anything that might be construed as speech, they are rather inconsistent on which cases of private censorship they weigh in on. They made a big fuss about the Tim Robbins-Baseball Hall of Fame squabble, for example.
