Republicans' election-year gambit: Targeting MySpace and social networking sites

I've placed a copy of the bill (backed by House Speaker Hastert, so it 
probably stands a good chance of being enacted) here:

Note that contrary to the Subject: line of this post -- headlines can

networking sites. It would cover Slashdot.org and blog sites that permit 
comments, for starters.

News.com's coverage is here:
