Fifty years ago this month, a San Francisco municipal court judge ruled that Allen Ginsberg's poem "HOWL" was not obscene.

Last week a public radio station chose not to broadcast a 1959 reading of the poem due to fear of an FCC fine.

You can listen to an online broadcast of the poem at HOWL Against Censorship.

Right, like they'd have trouble find lawyers to take the case?! The ACLU would obviously throw everything they have behind the case, I think the station is just being cowardly.
