    From the article:

    "Now Earthlings ..." whirred the Vogon, "I present you with a simple choice! Either die in the vacuum of space, or ..." he paused for melodramatic effect, "tell me how good you thought my poem was!"

    I bet he would have lasted only 5 minutes listening to Broadway.

    Fuckin' priceless! What happened to being punished for your crimes? What if he liked the music and didn't consider it torture at all? I think the judge should be reprimanded for wasting taxpayer dollars and insulting the defendent with this despicable joke of a ruling.

    I'm personally a lot more concerned with the way that sentences like this can be misused: "I'm fining you one billion dollars, but I'll drop the fine if you watch this video on Intelligent Design/The Rapture/my 9-11 Conspiracy Theory/etc."

    Exactly, what other crimes will you be able to get away with by watching a 30-minute promotional video.

    I hope the defendent wasn't a minority, this smacks of racism. Apparently it's torture for a rap fan to listen to classical music. I can't tell you how many crimes I'd commit if I knew all I'd have to do was listen to the Moonlight Sonata. That's the first song I ever learned how to play.
