When the U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft isn't too busy with downsizing constitutional rights in the godgiven War on Terrorism, then he is focusing on one of his other Wars. The War on Drugs always is a favorite, and the War on File Sharing freshly started, but nothing makes him feel like a man as the War on Porn.

What's next? Prosecution for reading porn? Criminal punishment for sexual acts in the confines of one's own home? Oh, wait, that's no future fear, that's reality now.
