    Don't Have Sex In Sweden, Even If You Wanted To

    ...or what happened to Julian Assange might happen to you:

    Assange is being prosecuted for having sex without a condom, with someone who didn’t mind the lack of condom at the time, but who subsequently was cross about the fact that he didn’t use a condom. Who was a 30something university lecturer (not that it would have made any difference had she been an 18-year-old student).  (Via Liberal Conspiracy)

    Or, as Assange's attorney James D. Catlin writes in Crikey:

    ...the Swedes are making it up as they go along.

    Let's hope they're doing it so that they can get Assange into court and then, under legal privilege, blow the whole gaff.  But we shouldn't, either, forget -- who was it who said this? -- that the traditional American response to a problem is to kill it.
