"A bridge too far"
The Supreme Court is considering a case where Congress is trying to suppress child pornography, but is so broad that it is trying to include images that are not real. Stopping the production of materials that show adults having sexual contact with children in all its forms is a reasonable goal. To act against created images that do not show real children is overreaching, but is reflective of the present climate of hysteria where a prosecutor was ready to go after the movie maker of "Hounddog" for making child pornography.
