Pornographic Web site includes Va. city slogan

DANVILLE, Va. - Four months after the city adopted the slogan ''Danville Can,'' a resident has made it the address of his pornographic Web site titled ''Pete's Wild and Young Adventures in a Gay Wonderland.''

Site creator Peter Boykin, 23, said material on the site, which includes pictures of males engaged in sex acts, is for ''shock value.''

Todd Yeatts, the city's director of legislative and public affairs, said Danville does not have a copyright on the slogan and can't control its use.

Boykin said he is willing to sell the name, but City Manager Jerry Gwaltney said public money won't be spent to reward somebody ''for something like that.''
