Another disturbing legal factoid: it is apparently not illegal in California to show or distribute child pornography if it is done for a "legitimate educational activity". If I've read the statute correctly (Penal Code Section 311.1(b)) teachers in elementary schools can show kiddie porn to their students under the guise of education! (Of course, the teachers would still have to comply with all the parental notification requirements for instuctional materials dealing with sex and human sexuality -- See California Education Code Sections 51550-51555).
