    I posted this, this morning, when I heard it on the news. Maybe admin thought it was a joke because they deleted it.
    Now I have a link. Believe it or not, shooting photos up a woman's dress is legal in Massachusetts.

    Yeah, one of those cases where the court said the problem was that the law didn't specifically prohibit this exact situation. Especially since digital imaging with small mobile devices came into existence after those laws were written.

    But it looks like the Massachusetts legislature is energized enough over the issue to amend the law to make such practices illegal in the future, as they should be. Stay tuned.

    In the meantime, I would think that though the guy at the center of this case got off (no pun), his own future and reputation have been suitably ruined. He's gonna be branded a sleazy loser for the rest of his life.

    And now it's illegal. The bill already passed and signed into law today.
