Would anyone get hurt if a person rents a porno video? Would anyone else, 
other than the person engaged in soliciting the services of a prostitute, 
be at risk of contracting a sexually transmitted disease? Have we made any 
headway on the "war on drugs?"

I don't think so. We spend billions of dollars trying to curb activities 
that have been around for thousands of years. We clog the judicial system 
with cases pertaining to these penny-ante antics, while at the same time we 
ignore the real issues that harm decent citizens every day.

Law enforcement should spend its time on catching "real criminals," such as 
murderers, rapists, home invaders and burglars, to mention but a few. Those 
are the activities that can affect the lives of the rest of us.

The MBI is wasting time and funds fighting a losing battle. I urge it not 
to squander its resources and to focus on real crimes.
