I have to agree with this piece. The alleged foiled terror plot in New York is looking flimsier and flimsier. It’s one thing to have an informant infiltrate and report an existing terror plot. It’s another when–as a couple of these cases have appeared now–the informant is the one who does most of the organizing and motivating. As one emailer put it, terrorists who pose an actual threat to us probably aren’t dumb enough to get suckered into something like this.

Man could get 15 years in prison after agreeing to a plea bargain where he’ll plead guilty to one count each of “Possession of Obscene Visual Representation of the Sexual Abuse of Children”, and “Mailing Obscene Matter.” His crime? He ordered manga comic books through the mail. So these were drawings. No actual children depicted. It’s also not clear from the article if the comic books actually explicitly identified the “victimized” cartoon characters as minors, or if they merely had some characteristics of minors.
Free the Hops wins! Alabamans can now, finally, enjoy beer that really does “drink pretty good.”
