Just a couple points about Mapplethorpe in Cincinnati (several years ago).

The curator of the Contemporary Art Center was prosecuted, not the artist.

Whether or not the Washington conservatives had questioned the NEA funding,
local Cincinnati officials would still have prosecuted. It's a Cincinnati
thing. Larry Flynt is from the area, and he still comes back to stir things
up because it so easy to set people off.
