The slippery slope gets slicker: the definitions of illegal poetry will get lower and lower. I won't have to illustrate a violent act - just opposition to a government policy, or a You Tube video someone doesn't like may get us all "renditioned."

confess: I am guilty of
thoughtcrime - freedom dreams!
