In accordance with the feverish warlike spirit of recent weeks, we've decided to launch an all-out attack on the evil people who try to make us gentle souls here at Exotic as big bad guys. The fact of the matter is, the people who run around saying these awful things have an obvious agenda. They are only exploiting the limited editorial interest of their targets and twisting an obvious satire or parody around to incite anger in an effort to meet their chosen agenda, which is, of course, money, money, money.

These greedy opportunists run around selling ads in inferior publications and the only way they can do that is to attack what they perceive is our weak point. The perception that we are evil and bad and sexist and racist, etc. What they don't say, although they are intelligent enough to realize, is that a lot of our editorial is satire and parody... designed, not to promote hateful views, but to make fun of them, and point out the hypocrisy inherent in our society. This may be a stretch for some people to understand, but that's what it is. Period.

Former Portland school board councilman Derry Jackson, who earlier in the year was taken to task and recalled from office for his anti-

semitic remarks, attempted last week to get Mark Twain's Huckleberry Finn banned from Portland Public Schools. How many times do we have to go through this? Mark Twain aka Samuel Clemens is the quintessential American writer and satirist. Huckleberry Finn is considered at the very least among the top three classic American novels. Yet over 100 years after it's publishing, ignorant people are still attempting to take an obvious anti-slavery epic and classify it as racist. Have you READ Huckleberry Finn, Mr. Jackson?

The obvious connection here is, before you pull your advertising because unqualified, agenda-ridden, greedy opportunists tell you an article means something, maybe you should read it and understand it, in proper context, for yourself. Satire and parody are historically the tools for positive social change, pointing out the ignorance of the majority or the hypocrisy of the ruling class. Or both.

But then we're just a little free sex mag out of Portland, and maybe we're setting our sights too high. But hey, it makes for good reading and a few chuckles at our own expense. And of course everyone else's.
