    That would imply consistency...the rules change as they see fit.

    Like Justice Potter Stewart thought about 'decency' and 'obscenity'

    Former Justice Potter Stewart of the Supreme Court of the United States, in attempting to classify what material constituted exactly "what is obscene", famously wrote, "I shall not today attempt further to define the kinds of material I understand to be embraced . . . [b]ut I know it when I see it . . ."[1]

    "Standards? We don't need no stinking standards..."
