Similar in Theory, if Not in Magnitude

And to make up for the lack of a news item in the last post:

Iran: Death Penalty for Porn Creators

Nothing much to comment on here, except to remind y'all that Alberto Gonzales, and by extension George W. Bush, also want to use government power to wipe out pornography. This, of course, is despite the protests of free speech activists and even over the objections of prosecutors and lawyers on the street.

Again, it's interesting how US government resembles Islamic theocracies in certain respects more than the European culture we supposedly came from...
