California Assemblyman Wants to Censor Satellite Imagery

Stupid Republican California Assemblyman Joel Anderson has introduced a bill to censor online satellite imagery of public buildings. “His bill would restrict the images such Web sites could post online. Clear, detailed images of schools, hospitals, churches and all government buildings — what he calls soft terrorism targets — would not be allowed. … His bill would make it illegal in California to post close-up images of such buildings. Instead, the images would have to be blurred.” Note to terrorists: Everything blurred is worth bombing. And, since transportation infrastructure is also clearly a soft terrorist target, all imagery of roads should be blurred too. Via All Points Blog.
