    Interesting. I thought he had died years ago.

    Now the gold wheelchair can be shipped to The Orange One. Always a good prop to show up to court.

    He stuck to his beliefs. RIP

    I'm surprised he wasn't older.

    It would have been ironic if he was 69.

    I still have a copy of the parody ad he did for Smirnoff that featured Jerry Fallwell. It sparked a landmark free speech case that Flynt won.

    RIP...What does the "P" stand for again?
    He did not know that the sword he'd hold, would turn his priceless empire into fool's gold...

    Once again, despite being told to refrain from political crap, it always comes from one side.

    Was that truly a political statement? Hmmm.

    Does mentioning a former politician automatically qualify a statement as being political?

    Are you always the first to complain?

    How about if I wrote "Now the gold wheelchair can be shipped to The Senile One for the next time he breaks his foot trying to molest his dog after a shower."?

    Is that political?

    No idea.

    No, it's just ignorant.

    My comment was Not political....but about crassness. A Gold Wheelchair.....a Gold Toilet. Rich old white men with no taste. I apologize to those that assumed politics....it wasn’t the cause of the post. Flint is gone......good riddance. YMMV IMHO.

    You have nothing to apologize for. Although it is a noble gesture.

    Ok...and now back to our regularly scheduled program. One thing I can say about Larry Flynt, he went to bat for freedom of speech like few others have, and he paid a very steep price for doing so. He talked the talk and walked the walk, even if he ended up doing the walking in his wheelchair. Good riddance someone said? Fuck that, Larry was a champion. RIP

    With Hustler, Larry Flynt dispensed with the pretentious attitudes of both Playboy and Penthouse and presented smut for what it was. That said, his appreciation of great photography was apparent as well. He didn't cut corners when it came to that aspect of it.
