David Ogden, President Obama's pick for deputy attorney general, seems to have his priorities a little screwed up!
He once filed a brief on behalf of a group of library directors arguing against the Children's Internet Protection Act. The act ordered libraries and schools receiving funding for the Internet to restrict access to obscene sites. But Ogden's brief argued that the act impaired the ability of librarians to do their jobs. He called it "unconstitutional," though the Supreme Court later disagreed with him and upheld the act.
And he argued, on behalf of several media groups, against a child pornography law that required publishers of all kinds to verify and document the age of their models (which would ensure the models are at least 18). The provisions were struck down.
Do we really want THIS guy in this position? no. Do you think it will happen any way? probably. What about you?

The fact, HONEY, is that i don't think those sites should be available in a public library. To ANYONE, but especially children. How the hell does it affect the way to do your job to block these sites! WHY would someone need to look at these sites in a public place!!!!
