HHS: Library Porn is Forbidden
The Washington Post is reporting a February 9 incident where two uniformed members of the Montgomery County Homeland Security Department walked into the Little Falls Library in Bethesda, Maryland, demanded the attention of patrons, then announced that the viewing of porn on library computers is forbidden.
One of the men, apparently displeased with what a patron was viewing, told the man to step outside. A librarian intervened, police were called, and ultimately the HHS men left the library by themselves.
Later that afternoon, Montgomery County's chief administrative officer, Bruce Romer, issued a statement calling the incident "unfortunate" and "regrettable" -- two words that bureaucrats often deploy when things have gone awry. He said the officers had been reassigned to other duties.

Reuters is reporting that Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Tim Murphy has issued a restraining order against Paris Hilton. The order says she must stay away from party planner Brian Quintana, who accuses the video star of being really really mean. Her lawyer says the order is actually a victory for Ms. Hilton, since she wanted to stay away from him anyway.
