"Dear Penthouse: I'm an Army sergeant stationed in South Carolina who has to sneak off the base to buy your magazine..." The Supreme Court on Friday upheld the ban on Penthouse at the PX, confirming the military's right to ban the sale of sexually explicit magazines on military bases. "The decision shows that the Court continues to give great deference to what the military calls its need to maintain good order and discipline," says TIME Pentagon correspondent Mark Thompson. "The military works under a different set of rules from civilian society, and for the most part the Court still respects that." And putting saltpeter in troopers' food is probably unconstitutional.
