Land of the Free . . . As Long as You Conform to Puritanical Ideals

All of America should breath a collective sigh of relief to know that our diligent border officials are on the case:

LONDON, England (AP) — British writer and self-styled dandy Sebastian Horsley was denied entry to the United States after arriving to promote his memoir of sex, drugs and flamboyant fashion.

Horsley said he was questioned for eight hours Tuesday by border officials at Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey before being denied entry on grounds of “moral turpitude.”

Because, you know, someone who did drugs and led a dissolute life should not be paraded in front of all those impressionable youngsters. Oh, wait, George W. Bush did what when he was young?
