I ate my wafer...


In the news...20yr sentence for Internet Surfing

So, in the latest roundup of BBC headlines:

A very unlucky "student-journalist" in Afghanistan dodges the death penalty for downloading articles about woman's rights & islam, but gets 20 years. Considering the former student journalists I know, this has to be the most innocuous material a student-journalist has ever downloaded. In protest, later this evening, I plan to view unacceptable internet material, such as uncovered women's faces, homebrewing , and heretical science, while watching decadent western TV, drinking a beer, and eating a BLT. (Correction, relatively normal evening apparently doesn't count as protesting)
