Jacobellis v. Ohio, 378 U.S. 184 (1964)
Read it here:
"I shall not today attempt further to define the kinds of material
to be embraced within that shorthand description ["hard-core
pornography"]; and perhaps I could never succed in intelligibly
doing so. But I know it when I see it, and the motion picture
involved in this case is not that."
Eminently sensible of him, by the way.
And that, folks, is about as OT as we get on this list. :-)
