Greetings, my fellow port swillers!

Ol’ Robbo has been quietly chuckling to himself snorting with amused contempt ever since he spotted this article:  California Lawmakers Want Pron Stars to Wear Safety Goggles.

I ask you, friends of the decanter, to ponder this:  Have you ever in your lives come across a more perfect crossing of the streams of Nanny-Statism and moral rot?   The pure absurdity, the utter forest and trees cluelessness, the awfulness of the logic here is, in the scope of eeeeevile masquerading as good public policy, teh awesome.

Well played, Mr. Screwtape, well played indeed.

I tried to parse this out further, wondering what other health hazards the good Solons of the WC might want to combat while at the same time continuing to promote the debasement of human sexuality in general and of “workers” in the pron industry (and their cash-paying audience) in particular.   I came up with a mental image involving elbow and knee pads, mouth-guards, crash helmets and latex bubble-wrap that I hesitate even to mention, lest some producer with a taste for the kinkier side of things reads this post and thinks, “Hmmmm….Ya know? There might  be something in that…..”
