Bill Clinton to move to California

Not really, but you'd think so after the California Supreme Court said oral sex with kids is OK!

On Wednesday, the California Supreme Court voted 6 to 1 to not force those convicted of having oral sex with underage kids to register as sex offenders with the state. The majority judges said that the law was "too harsh and unfair." Yes, I'm sure that the problem with such enforcement is the resolute "unfairness" of punishing those who know it is a crime and yet do it anyway. How terrible.

The judges justified their conclusion by citing the fact that under the state laws of California people convicted of having actual sexual intercourse with those who are 16 and 17 years of age are not forced to register as a sex offender. Their argument claims a lack of equal protection under the law.

It's this kind of lunacy that reminds me why I'm happy to live on the opposite coast. Ya'll got some real loons out there. Unfortunately, they are the ones wearing black robes, creating the laws.

(Tip for all you Jay Bennish students: the State Senate creates laws, not the courts. I know this is a shock to you, but that's how it works.)

Or, maybe I'm too old-fashioned in my thinking, because, you know, oral sex isn't really sex, depending on what your definition of "is" is.

(Stop The ACLU with the tip)
