It is symbolically appropriate that among other charges in Sweden WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is accused of having unprotected sex with two women in Stockholm. I don't know whether the world-famous Internet whistleblower is guilty or not, but the allegation certainly fits his reputation for world-class recklessness. Known for releasing hundreds of thousands of pages of classified documents on the doorstep of the New York Times and other major media, Assange, who was arrested earlier this week, is praised by some as a courageous whistle-blower and truth-seeker.
