CNET interviews ALA's Judith Krug in Sex, the Constitution and the Net. CIPA is back in the courts, and ALA is back in the news advocating for choice in the matter. CIPA is a frightening, big-brother idea, but whiat really bothers me about the legislation is the lack of choice. To receive e-rate funding, libraries will have to use filters. Without this funding, Krug points out, many libraries wouldn't have internet connections, and that really angers me.

This isn't about pornography, this legislation is about control of information and manipulation of public access to that information with public funds. And it sickens me!
