Obscenity A Low Priority?

Just had drinks with an old mainstream reporter friend of mine who has contacts within the L.A. branch of the U.S. Attorney’s Office, who tell her they’re being pressured by Washington to aggressively initiate obscenity prosecutions against [the adult] industry. The attitude of the L.A. branch, however, is that in this post 9/11 world, obscenity prosecutions are very low priority and hence, they’re trying to stall Washington as much as possible – maybe like until 2008 when Bush is out of office? Stay tuned.

This is very interesting, especially given the recent directive by Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales.
