R.L. Shephard made an excellent post in WLCO this morning about fantasy vs. reality.

The Canadian government is prosecuting an American traveler for being in possession of child pornography, because he crossed their border with fantasy art and manga on his computer. The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund (CBLDF) is contributing money to defend the traveler, the entirety of whose “child pornography” consists of manga art. If convicted, this traveler will spend a minimum of one year in prison, and be registered as a sex offender—not because he harmed or exploited anyone underage, but because of his chosen reading material, which he brought with him on his computer across the America-Canada border.

Read about the case.
