Update on Obscenity Conviction:

Timothy Sandefur pointed me to a related post on his blog here, where he describes in some detail an even more appalling case involving criminal prosecution for purely textual descriptions of children engaged in obscene acts. [And note to commenter "Anonn": sorry, but i really do not consider that my use of the word "damn," though you apparently find it deeply offensive, constitutes an "obscenity.']
