Attention on Utah's Porn Czar Continues
SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- While still bringing up the existence of
polygamy in Utah, and referring to the state as "sometimes comically
conservative," this article from probably the English-speaking
world's most prestigious news weekly praises Utah's appointment of
Miss Paula Houston as "obscenity and pornography complaints ombudsman"
The article concludes: "The ubiquity of computers and the difficulty
of developing 'filters' that skim off offensive material without
restricting access to the useful sort make web-policing a formidable
job. Still, the sometimes comically conservative state of Utah may be
leading a charge that needs to be led. And out in front is Paula
Houston, porn tsar."
