posthumously published in 1999

Times seem to have moved on at ABC News and Fairfax, where stories and opinion pieces are running strongly in favour of Bill Henson.

News Ltd remains largely in the dark, toady ages, pandering to the very lowest common denominators, who think that nudity invariably equals pornography, or that somehow, putting an image on the big bad internet magically transmogrifies it from art to porn.

So, for the great unwashed, who can’t tell the difference between art and smut, here’s some more ‘kiddie porn,’ brought to you by those dirty bastards at The Internet.
