March 8, 1961: Paul Coates has an item about the possibility that the new postmaster general, J. Edward Day, might run afoul of obscenity laws because he wrote a racy novel that could be unfit for the U.S. mail. Day joked that he wrote the novel out of boredom during World War II and sent it home to his mother to proofread!
