Ashcroft v. Free Speech

Yay! Supreme Court strikes down ban on virtual child pornography. It's hard to tell from this article, it seems like they didn't make any judgements on the illegality of the act portrayed (which would have opened up some really interesting cans of worms), but this skirmish in the attack on overly broad speech restrictions seems to have gone in freedom's favor.

They're not only awake, they're paying attention.

Linking: Good. In fact when I first put up the discussion system, my hope was that it'd be used for linking to longer commentary. I need to add verbiage to that effect.
