Today’s AJC Metro section offers a sterling example of clueless “license is better than liberty” journalism: a fluffy little feature on Atlanta strip-club lawyer Alan Begner, who “for 31 years has been in the vanguard of holding back the Forces of Wholesomeness,” according to reporter Bill Torpy.
Yes, by all means, let’s sing the praises of the man. Atlanta is a bastion of strip clubs, porn shops and sex trafficking — and all those benefits a community derives therefrom. I’m sure the women and children being sexually exploited in the city would like to thank him personally.
God forbid our communities are overrun by wholesomeness … oh, wait … never mind.
The article, thankfully, is behind a paywall. That will keep it from being widely read, at least for now.
