Meaningless Law of the Day

So tell, folks-who-think-they-can-legislate-behavior-successfully, how do you intend to enforce this? It's not possible. You just passed a law strictly because it feels good.
Sex offenders: No Internet
Predatory offenders won't be able to My Space, FaceBook or Twitter

The highest-risk sex offenders will face limits on their Internet access under a bill the Minnesota Legislature voted unanimously to send to Gov. Tim Pawlenty.

Starting in August 2010, pedatory offenders put on intensive supervised release won't be able to access, create or maintain a personal Web page or social networking account if it permits contact with anyone under 18. The restrictions apply to chat rooms, instant messaging and popular sites like MySpace and Facebook.
