I'm a frequent recipient of Christian spam, but today's message was new. It offered a "complimentary bible and reading plan for salvation." Just by clicking a link, the e-mail said, I could claim a free King James bible and begin planning my salvation through faith in Jesus Christ.

But here's the weird part. At the bottom of the e-mail it says in small print: "Not available to California residents." What the heck? Is there some state law that prevents me from enjoying my complimentary bible? I feel like a sternly worded e-mail to our elected officials is in order.
