Jean, I'm at Patrick Henry High School in Roanoke where we spoke to a government teacher named Marianne Russell.

She says the Starr report is NOT ONLY available on school computers, but her class discussed the difference between sexual foreplay and sexual intercourse as it relates to the President.
This openness is in sharp contrast to other schools in our area.

The lurid details Congress voted to make public Friday present a minor irony for lawmakers like Roanoke congressman Bob Goodlatte.
Goodlatte fought for the Communications Decency Act of 1996. It's since been struck down in court.
But it would have punished those who make "indecency" available to children on the Internet.
(----------------)
[VO-NAT]


At the time, Goodlatte said: "The exact definition of indecency is 'any material that in context depicts or describes, in terms patently offensive, as measured by contemporary community standards, sexual or excretory activities or organs.'
The Starr Report has more than enough of that.
But Goodlatte went on to say: "Indecency is not an inherent attribute of words or pictures, but rather a matter of context and conduct."
[SUPER=03-Washington/Friday;]


In other words, the Starr Report is NOT meant to titillate ... just to educate.
So Goodlatte's spokesman today said he stands by his vote to make the report public.

That includes meal times.
