The Same, But Dirtier

One assumes that Al Goldstein who died at the age of 77 would have gotten a kick out of both the headline and the money shot of this NYT obituary: Al Goldstein, Who Made Porn Dirtier, Dies at 77 — “Mr. Goldstein did not invent the dirty magazine, but he was the first to present it to a wide audience without the slightest pretense of classiness or subtlety.” As if the contents of the article were not enough, it also comes with this correction: An earlier version of this article misstated the name of a movie Mr. Goldstein starred in. It is “Al Goldstein & Ron Jeremy Are Screwed,” not “Al Goldstein & Ron Jeremy Get Screwed.” Incredible.
