No new porn for a while it seems. The Independent has a great article on the current freeze on porn out of San Fernando.

One thing it touches on is that this could be the opportunity that Ashcroft and Co. need to start attacking it. The Baltimore Sun article mention's forensic specialist Lam Nygun as one of Ashcroft's warriors against porn. And I quote:

"Lam Nguyen's job is to sit for hours in a chilly, quiet room devoid of any color but gray and look at pornography. This job, which Nguyen does earnestly from 9 to 5, surrounded by a half-dozen other "computer forensic specialists" like him, has become the focal point of the Justice Department's operation to rid the world of porn."


Lam Nguyen also said the work is hard and hours are long but he feels finished at the end of the day...(ok I made that up)

Now granted porn and Howard Stern are two different things, but first it's Howard Stern they'll get, next it will be the pornographers, and finally it will be artists with offensive material in music/art/movies. People are forgetting that if one person's rights are attacked then all of ours are. Howard Stern today, maybe you or me tomorrow.

This 'incident' in porn probably will be the catalyst for a whole big debate on it. That's what I can't wait to hear. The candidates stances on porn. They did it right during the Clinton years. They focused on the child porn and the underage stuff. If two consenting adults want to get paid by another consenting adult to have sex so that it can be filmed and bought by people who consent to it. Then why should John Ashcroft care about it.

George Bush and his adminstration make no sense. I fear because they are a legion of Christian soldiers who feel that their Neo-Conservative view of the world is the only way it should be.
