Just when you think Utah County might actually be a part of Western Civilization, you read a story like this.
Last weekend, Judy Cox was shocked to see mildly racy T-shirts from the Visual by Van Styles line, displayed in the PacSun store window at University Mall in Orem. She determined they were "pornographic" and asked they be taken down—which didn't happen.
"This is hard to police because of freedom of speech," mall manager Rob Kallas, told the Provo Daily Herald.
So, Cox bought all the T-shirts at $27.50 a pop—a total of $567. That'll teach 'em.
Cox says she considered destroying them, but instead, "I'll let their corporate office figure out what to do with them when I return them on day 59 of a 60-day return policy." (Does anyone forsee a 20 percent-off sale on certified "infamous porn shirts"? Think what they'll sell for on Ebay!).
Reports the Daily Herald: "Cox said she was so concerned about the promotion and the "pornographic" material that she has contacted two national organizations, Women for Decency and One Million Moms. Both organizations have had success in stopping the spread of indecent material and subject matter on TV, in movies and in print media."
