Obscene meddling

Let's see. We have foreign terrorists to worry about, not to mention domestic monsters of all sorts as well as fraud and robbery and kidnapping and God knows what else, so of course we should make the FBI's new prime mission going after adult porn. If this truly is what some suspect, the attorney general's attempt to curry favor with the GOP base in hopes of a Supreme Court appointment, may he end up in Terre Haute as a public defender, representing destitute drunk-driving child molesters.

"Local standards" should mean just that. Fort Wayne and Las Vegas aren't the same and shouldn't have to be; let each community decide what it considers obscene and proceed accordingly. We don't need the FBI holding our hands or goading us along.
