American politics is no more absurd than politics anywhere. Honestly. Trust me on this one. No new taxes.

  June 2004 Supreme Court Ruling on Ashcroft v. the Child Online Protection Act (COPA)

Read the ruling [a pdf file].

The Supreme Court has sent this back down for a lower court evaluation in terms of technology that might alleviate the constitutional concerns, but you and I could have saved them the trouble: there is no such technology, and there may never be.

Perhaps this shouldn't be talked about here: I think there is a great consensus on the desire to protect children from pornography, there is no gigarot in all this. The dilemma is that truly open communications are open, and very hard to protect our kids against, except by removing their access.

There have been times when, driving my kids to school with the radio on, I cringed, realizing what my kids were hearing.

And that was the news.
