SEARCH outfit Google has managed to tell the US government to go forth and multiply over its demands that it hand over details of keywords that its punters choose to search.

US Justice Department wanted the data so it could back a Bush administration initiative to defend a federal law created to shield children from online pornography.

Good for Google.

Letting kids use the internet unsupervised is like letting them wander the worst part of town on their own. I hate to see the government nosing into everyone's business on the excuse that some parents can't figure that out.
