        The Supreme Court has just noted probable jurisdiction in the Child
Internet Protection Act case, U.S. v. American Library Ass'n, see

602A for a brief description and a link to the decision.

        Any thoughts on what the result should be?  Recall that the question
is whether the federal government may mandate that public libraries filter
Internet access when the access is provided using federal funds; the lower
court said that it may not, and that in fact public libraries themselves
couldn't filter access, at least except on child-only computers.
