Moral turpitude

Sebastian Horley, British author of "Dandy in the Underworld," his account of a life dedicated to sex, drugs and finely tailored clothes, was denied entry to the U.S. on grounds of "moral turpitude." "I was dressed flamboyantly -- top hat, long velvet coat, gloves," Horsley said. "My one concession to American sensibilities was to remove my nail polish. I thought that would get me through." Link

Can the United States look any sillier or intolerant? Soon we'll all have to wear head scarves and grow beards.

Moral turpitude, I salute you.
