The Supreme Court is making me nervous. Not only because it’s stacked with four right-wing radicals, but nine people who seem a little out of touch with technology. DC Dicta’s reporting on a sexting case last week got a lot of attention. All the justices seemed a bit befuddled.* Here’s Scalia, unfamiliar with the technology presumably because it wasn’t mentioned by name in the Constitution.
"Could Quon print these spicy little conversations and send them to his buddies?" Scalia asked.
Yes. Usually when I have a sexually explicit e-mail or text I want to share with my buddies, I print them out and mail them. Or, if I want to cut down on transmission time, simply fax them over.
*To be fair to Clarence Thomas, he never asks questions so no one really knows what he thinks. It would also be naive to assumed he doesn’t know about the latest ways you can sexually harass people.
