You won't find anything even remotely indecent or objectionable in any of my pages (I've even been blessed by one of the WWW rating services). Nevertheless, I feel that the recent legislation passed by the US Congress which imposes severe penalties for posting some kinds of material on the Net is seriously flawed. Further information on this topic is available from EFF and VTW. Senator Leahy (D-Vt) has introduced a bill (S. 1567) to repeal that legislation. I urge you to read and consider these carefully and remember Thomas Jefferson's words:

"A society that will trade a little liberty for a little order will lose both, and deserve neither."

"If we die, do not mourn for us. This is a risky business we're in, and we accept those risks. The space program is too valuable to this country to be halted for too long if a disaster should ever happen." -- Gus Grissom, three weeks before he was killed in the Apollo 1 fire.

I hold with those who favor fire.
