City Snow

Over the empty lot,
Where shattered glass
And plastic bags
Lie scattered,

The flakes come
Tumbling down, unasked,
Masking the scene in soft clean white,
Gleaming with incandescent light.

High School Cell Phone "Porn" Scandal

At Parkland High, in Allentown, PA, students are in trouble.  Why?  For using their cell phones to send and receive illegal pictures of fellow students:
The two Parkland students shown exposing themselves are 14 and 17, said Matthew S. Falk, Lehigh County's chief deputy district attorney. Both girls took the pictures of themselves.
The girls also transmitted the pictures to others, but apparently didn't expect them to spread like wildfire through the school.

So the authorities are threatening to charge everyone with possession of "child pornography".  Unless they erase the photos.

Somehow I don't think this is what people had in mind when they passed our draconian child porn laws.  But  the law is the law.

Underage people must be warned:
Undressed pictures of yourself are porn!
