In most states it is still a crime to have perform any sexual activity
between unmarried partners. We are all supposed to be virgins when/if we
get married. Unmarried people are supposed to stay virgins forever. This
is the law of the land, upon which our nation was founded....

For a while, I let my subscription to Entropy magazine run out. My security
consulting with certain U.S. Government agencies which don't officially
exists required me to identify any publications I received that ever mention
illegal activity, disapproval of the government, the possibility of the
government going away, or advocating any civil disobedience. (I now no
longer have those constraints, and hence, here I am!)
