WASHINGTON, DC – In a press conference today, White House PressSecretary Scott McClellan stated that President Bush would renewattempts to institute a Constitutional amendment banning homographs.Citing recent security concerns over homographs,McClellan noted, "These homographs are more menacing than ever before.It is no longer a localized affair. Through the process ofinternationalization, they are now organized into different kinds ofgroups that make it harder for us to recognize."
Many security experts have called for the tagging ofhomographs, expressing the need for visual indicators when homographsare present. However, civil libertarians vehemently disagree, arguingthat such actions smack of the ages-old ignorance and prejudiceregarding unfamiliar, foreign characters.
