Take That, Hustler!

The Philadelphia Inquirer profiled U.S. Sen. Charles Grassley's regular crusades, including one that involves Christianity Today.

When Hustler publisher Larry Flynt sent free subscriptions of his magazine to members of Congress, Grassley skipped the moralizing speeches his colleagues gave in response and sent a letter:

"Dear Larry: Since you have sent me a slice of your mind, I'd like to send you a slice of mine. You will shortly receive your first installment of an annual subscription to Christianity Today."
