MAD Magazine senior editor Joe Raiola’s The Joy of Censorship sheds light on the endless arguments over banned books, movie ratings, the FCC, the Patriot Act, and the true meaning of obscenity. The presentation also traces the unlikely and colorful history of MAD Magazine, from renegade publisher William Gaines’ historic showdown with the United States Senate over comic book censorship to MAD’s emergence as a revolutionary satiric force. The program concludes with a unique slide presentation spotlighting many of MAD’s most controversial and outrageous covers and articles, followed by a lively Q&A session.
