Kathryn, we can agree to differ in our views as to whether pornography is by definition degrading (I don’t believe it necessarily is, needless to say), but does the fact that Playboy is sold in exchange stores really imply any sort of official endorsement? I don’t think so. For example, exchange stores also stock cigarettes, and, last time I checked, smoking was not something that Uncle Sam was recommending that anyone should do. What’s more, many people consider cigarette smoking to be irrational, self-destructive, dangerous to others and, yes, immoral. Would you ban cigarettes from the PX?
