Associated Press reports today:  

Officials at one the nation's three nuclear weapons laboratories 
discovered their computers were used to store pornography, the Los 
Angeles Times reported Tuesday. Computers at the Lawrence Livermore 
National Laboratory contained more than 1,000 pornographic images, 
said Chuck Cole, deputy associate director of computing at the lab.

The computers were shut down after an investigation uncovered software 
piracy on the Internet, a network of thousands of computer networks 
originally designed to connect computers at universities and government 
research labs. It is now used by millions of people.  "We are currently 
tracking over 1,600 pirate sites on the Internet in a joint 
investigation with the FBI," said Peter Beruk of the Software 
Publishers Association, which represents major software manufacturers. 
"It is a very serious and costly problem."  [...]

Some people might consider the second paragraph a nonsequitur to 
the first. However, if one doesn't think too clearly about things, one
might get the general message that we need Daddy to help protect us 
from the pornographers and pirates lurking out there on that internet
