Search me (yet again): The pre-emptive strike edition

The Justice Department has asked a federal judge to compel Google, the Internet search giant, to turn over records on millions of its users' search queries as part of the government's effort to uphold an online pornography law.

Google has been refusing the request since a subpoena was first issued last August, even as three of its competitors agreed to provide information, according to court documents made public this week.

Search terms used to find The Velvet Blog this week:
--is jim o'connor of food network gay?*
--monica lewinsky
--count chocula
--isolde name pronunciation
--simpsons toast points
--hannity idiot

Nothing too porny, thank goodness. (Well, the Lewinsky search was for an image, so who knows...)

*He does seem quite happy, yes.
