A good commentary on the Grisham comments

After reading the Washington Post‘s gross apologia article on the John Grisham comments, I needed a palate cleanser. Luckily, author Anne Ursu was available (via Bookshelves of Doom):

On John Grisham, Victimized Pedophiles, and the Children’s Book Industry

That’s the thing—implicit in his comments is the idea that child pornography just happens, and when men of a certain age get drunk and poke around on the internet they cannot help but stumble upon it. Ah, well. No harm done. Who put that porn there? It’s not like they’re perverted or something. 

So good. Go read it!
