Very Generous George and for a wonderful cause.

I volunteered for the CBLDF for years and Charles is a friend. I always try to help them out (as well as Hero Initiative) whenever I can and wish I was in a position to do more.
I still go back to the case of Jesus Castillo who as a Comic Store Manager (not the owner he just worked there) was tried and convicted of violating Texas law because he sold an Adult Comic which was in a clearly marked "Adult Section" of the store to...an ADULT Undercover Police Officer!
While the Prosecution met none of the Federal Standards for Obscenity he was convicted based on the fact that 'Comics are for children and therefore his intent was to sell this to children" Something which he never did.
The trial cost the fund I believe between $70-90K for the defense which went to the Supreme Court who chose not to hear the case... so the Donations are key!
