More news of the ridiculous

Don't know if you've heard about the story of the Connecticut teacher (a substitute!) who was taken to court because her inadequately protected classroom computer began to spout porn in the middle of a classroom presentation. Probably anybody who's been on the Internet has bumped into things they didn't want to find, but viruses and other malware make this kind of thing the responsibility of the tech folks, not the innocent teacher. Anyway, This Modern World recaps the story (with lots of links along the way) and updates its status, which involves a volunteer-funded legal team attempting to overturn her absurdly unjust conviction.
