This is the scariest thing I've read in a long time - One Hour Arrest. Apparently in Texas, photos of a woman breastfeeding her child are "lewd and sexual" because she's exposing her breast in front of a child (which implies that breastfeeding itself is sexual and inappropriate, conveniently ignoring that the primary purpose of breasts is nourishing a child, not sexual arousal). The idea that the minimum wage clerk at Eckerd's should be the one to determine which photos are pornographic and which aren't is ludicrous, especially when Supreme Court judges can't even agree on what elements constitute pornography. And how many child pornographers are dropping of their pictures at Eckerd's to be developed, anyway?
