On a cloudy day

Thursday, December 11th, 2008

I’ve mentioned our local porn store before and it’s various trouble in dealing with the local yokel good ol’ boy network that thinks you shouldn’t look at dirty movies.

I’ve covered the plight of Sunshyne Video (link is not work safe) before. Sunshyne is a local adults only store and, according to local politicos, a den of debauchery and iniquity.
