Banned Books Week

I’ve nearly missed the American Library Associations Banned Books Week that runs through October 6th.

The quality of the books that get banned these days is not up to standards of days gone by because the book-burners have gotten so thin-skinned. The most memorable local case of recent years was a campaign to ban several ‘graphic novels’ from a local library because this woman’s son had gained illegal access to a restricted [Adults Only] are of the library and was ’emotionally distressed’ by what he found there.

Of course, the child’s emotional distress had nothing to do with the fact that the librarian caught him, voided his library card, and referred the matter to the local police as a burglary. 😈
