"Some members of Congress are up in arms at the news that the Justice Department has dismantled a Bush-era Obscenity Prosecution Task Force to go after hard-core material on the Internet. No fewer than 42 senators, most of them Republicans, have written Attorney General Eric Holder to urge tougher enforcement of obscenity laws. Their argument is that pornography causes sexual violence, molestation of children, sex trafficking, and other maladies. ... You will wait in vain to hear of other senators joining together to say this is all nonsense, though that happens to be the case." (04/21/11)
