Unfuckingbelieavble: In Florida (haven’t we fired Florida yet?) they’re requiring women putting children up for adoption to publish information in the newspaper (!) naming and describing herself, naming and describing the possible father(s), and naming the date and location of conception. The Scarlet Letter meets The Handmaid’s Tale. I’m really struggling for the words to describe how evil this is, and I’m wondering: If videocameras were the (partial) answer to rampant police brutality (cf Rodney King), what ‘s the answer to massive judicial invasions of privacy? I’ve ruled out public vivisection of John Ashcroft — at least as far as you know — but beyond that you got me.
