first comes the moral turpitude..

then the travel restriction when you spin a memoir from it.
British author Sebastian Horsley was recently denied entry to America to promote his new book, due to his having been "convicted of a crime involving moral turpitude (which includes controlled-substance violations) " says the NY Times quoting a spokesperson for the Customs and Border Protection office.
Horsley has been in Canada recently and the book has gotten a bit of a bump.
For his part, Horsley is "absolutely shattered and upset and gutted about not being able to come to America."
I'm not for standing in the way of anyones right to travel, but if misery memoirists can be kept from, no this is still wrong.
Never mind.
