Porn free

The Smoking Gun website
has added A Different Bomb
to its archive. This is guitarist
Pete Townshend’s six-page
paper about intemet pornog-
raphy where, he says, the
“pathway to ‘frec’ paedophilic
imagery is - as it were —- laid
out like a free line of cocaine
at a decadent cocktail party:
only the strong-willed or ter-
minally uncurious can resist.”
It seems the paper was pub-
lished on Townshend’s official
website in January 2002.
