Do you think most people in Idaho have actually heard of Cannes?

I remember an Idaho G.I. once telling me : " There are no gays in Idaho . " ( he was trying to make me while saying this ) So one must conclude you have a very good point there .

A theatre with a Liquor License?

I thought that was just a Baja-Oklahoma thing.

Good! I'm sure Idaho film fans don't want to see any movie about filthy dykes anyway.

Idaho Code 23-614, which prohibits films featuring "acts or simulated acts of sexual intercourse, masturbation, sodomy, bestiality, oral copulation, flagellation or any sexual acts which are prohibited by law" and "any person being touched, caressed or fondled on the breast, buttocks, anus or genitals".

With all those restrictions, what movie could they show there then? Oh, yea, guns and explosives and mass death and destruction, as long as there is no sex. Good for them. I can see where their priorities rest.

Idaho Code 23-614 is obviously unconstitutional. So show the damn movie and take them to court. We've got to move this country out of the 19th century - even backwards I-da-ho'.
