    Porn shows up in businessman's slide show
    Associated Press
        FORT WORTH -- A North Texas businessman has been jailed after
        co-workers reported an image of child pornography showed up on a
        screen as he gave a computer slide presentation recently.
        James Andrew Smith of Denton was in the Mansfield Jail under $300,000
        bond after he was charged with two counts of possessing child
        pornography and one charge of promoting child pornography.
        Exel Inc. co-workers told police Smith had just completed a PowerPoint
        presentation on Sept. 4 when he tried to open another document on his
        laptop computer. The co-workers said a photograph of a nude young boy
        appeared on the screen.
