THE SUN

BY THE END of the 1970s the magazine 60 Minutes was at its peak ratings. In one of the seasons there was a segment about a famed pornographer and another one about the evangelical sister of the evangelical president of the United States.

After the broadcasts the producer called the pornographer and told him that the evangelical sister of the evangelical president of the United States had asked for the pornographer to contact her.

The pornographer almost fell off his bed.

But he did call back. In their conversation the president’s sister tried to convince him that they had a lot in common and should get to know each other. According to her, she like the pornographer didn’t tolerate sexual repression. Except that she didn’t tolerate it in the marital bed, and he anyplace. To her, this was already a good start.

The pornographer was Larry Flynt, some of you might know him from a Hollywood flick. In their phone talk the president’s sister, Ruth Carter Stapleton, insisted that the pornographer fly over to her place for dinner since he had a jet.

The pornographer nearly fell off his bed a second time.
