RIP Barney Rosset

He was called a sexist, a pervert, a corrupter of youth, the Old Smut Publisher. He received death threats. He was sued countless times. He was the son of a rich, conservative banker. He was the champion of Free Speech. In the end, he was a publisher of books. Because of him we can say what we want, write what we want and print what we want. Without Barney Rosset these United States would not look the same. Thank you, sir.
