Sebastian Horsley & his brief visit with the U.S. Customs

At the moment I am reading this hysterical British memoir by Sebastian Horsley "Dandy in the Underworld" which deals with his affairs with various drugs and sexual adventure. it is sort of a 'must-read' for those who want to be entertained from a great and safe distance from Mr. Horsley's remarkable charms. But charming bad things! Nevertheless Horsley was turned down and forced to fly back to the U.K. by the U.S. Customs in New York. Horsley's trip to the States was for the purpose to promote his memoir.

It may have been Horsley's clothing (he was reported to be wearing a top hat and painted nails) or the nature of his 'past' life. Nevertheless we here at the U.S. are losing the opportunity to see and hear what i think is a remarkable author. Surely he will be allowed in the U.S.?

This was a set-up to sell a book that would otherwise have been obsolete after that tour. The fact of the matter is, the man can't write. He steals his lines and then butchers them. Boo hoo.

Now he has the publishing community rallying around him as a free speech advocate. Meanwhile, he can still go and apply for a visa like everyone ELSE who doesn't qualify for the waiver program. Why should he get special treatment just because he's written a bad book?
