(Newser) – If the Midwest is America's heartland, apparently Washington, DC, is a somewhat lower-positioned organ. Leading smut website PornHub.com has announced that the nation's capital is the US leader when it comes to watching porn, as compared to the 50 states, reports the Washington Post. In fact, DC residents watch nearly twice as much pornography as any other state—an average of 14.18 videos a year per person, compared to 7.57 videos a person in Hawaii, 7.52 in Massachusetts, and 7.5 in New York. The Post suggests that perhaps one reason for the city's ranking is that it is so single, with just a quarter of DC residents married, or about half the rate of the rest of the country. Check out an infographic filled with other porn-viewing stats at BuzzFeed.

The Securities and Exchange Commission was busted a couple years back. Apparently, its staff attorneys were spending their days (and I mean 8 hours a day) watching porn from their government PCs. As far as I know, no one was terminated for it. I've been terminated for far less, but I'm only a contractor. I was terminated for a timesheet error (one after 4 years of errorless reporting) and once for accepting the invitation of the COTR to take a telework day (for which I was fired by the Director, who did not seem to want to own up to or account for the fact the COTR encouraged me to do so).

I bet 95% or better of the watchers are gov employees on the job. So of course taxpayers are paying these public servents to lope their mules. With all the tech around, isn't there, oh lets see, some way to block porn sites from government computers? I guess not, just another cost to add to the national debt.
