Beverly Hills' own smut publisher Larry Flynt is interviewed about porn, civil liberties and the Internet by Xeni Jardin today at Wired News.
Wilshire Boulevard trivia question: why is there a statue of John Wayne outside the Flynt headquarters? Answer (and photo) follows.
The "Flynt Tower" at Wilshire and La Cienega used to be the headquarters of Great Western Savings. Wayne was the company's TV spokesman, so after he died in 1979 Great Western installed a statue of the actor riding a horse on the Hamilton Drive side of the building.
