The 2nd one is pretty pathetic man.  It's sad how the government won't use discretion in matters like that and just read the law like it's printed and go exactly by it.  They'll look for a dollar anywhere they can get it.

"Utah man arrested over 10 year old internet game. Underground gay community accidentally uncovered."

Hell of a headline if you ask me.

edit: email i got today:

   QUIZ:
   
    Ed    McMahon died last    week. He was a great entertainer, but prior to his stage accomplishments he    was a distinguished Marine Corps    fighter pilot in WWII earning six Air Medals and attaining the rank of    Colonel. He was discharged in 1946 and was later promoted to the    rank of Brigadier General in the CA Air National    Guard.
   
    Farrah    Fawcett died last week    after a long career in  Hollywood as an actress.  After she was diagnosed with cancer, she became an    activist for cancer treatment and devoted her last remaining years encouraging    people to seek treatment.  She documented her plight on film    and used it to encourage others to stay positive and upbeat despite their    diagnosis and suffering.
   
    Michael    Jackson died last    week.  He was perhaps one of the greatest singers of modern time.     He will also be remembered for his    eccentric lifestyle that included sleeping with a chimpanzee, living in a    carnival-like atmosphere at Neverland, his fascination with Peter    Pan, and his numerous masks and costumes.  He also admitted to finding pleasure sleeping with    young boys and paying out millions of dollars in settlements to the families    of these boys despite being acquitted by a court on one allegation of sexual    molestation.
   
   
    QUESTION    - Which of the above did the House of Representatives declare a moment of    silence for on Monday?  (Hint - It wasn't the first    two.)
   
    QUESTION    - Which of the above's family received a personal note of condolence from    President Obama?
    (Hint - It wasn't the first    two.)

Dec. 1 (Bloomberg) -- “I just wrote my first reference for a gun permit,” said a friend, who told me of swearing to the good character of a Goldman Sachs Group Inc. banker who applied to the local police for a permit to buy a pistol. The banker had told this friend of mine that senior Goldman people have loaded up on firearms and are now equipped to defend themselves if there is a populist uprising against the bank.



............


Henry Paulson, U.S. Treasury secretary during the bailout and a former Goldman Sachs CEO, let it slip during testimony to Congress last summer when he explained why it was so critical to bail out Goldman Sachs, and -- oh yes -- the other banks. People “were unhappy with the big discrepancies in wealth, but they at least believed in the system and in some form of market-driven capitalism. But if we had a complete meltdown, it could lead to people questioning the basis of the system.”
