U.S. Attonery's law enforcement priorities - yikes

http://www.law.com/jsp/article.jsp?id=1125318960389

Wow, this article blows me away.

I can just imagine that one part of our country is rejoicing at this list of priorities, while another part is angry.

What's scariest to me is how this issue has a "have you stopped beating your wife?" quality to it. If you come out against this main issue it makes it look like you have no morals, and if you agree with the choice you appear to be ignoring lots of more life threating issues.

As for my view - I have no problem with the goverment watching out for obscenity, but (a) I would prefer it lower on the priority list and (b) it better be pretty dang permissive, allowing citizens to make the call on what they think is appropriate in the end.
