Banned Book Week

Half Priced Books

"But the truth is, that when a Library expels a book of mine and leaves an unexpurgated Bible lying around where unprotected youth and age can get hold of it, the deep unconscious irony of it delights me and doesn't anger me." Mark Twain

America delights in euphanism.  Out of politeness we refer to anyone who attempts to judge what's best for others a "censor" when in fact they are bigots.   It is our duty as thinking human beings to eradicate bigotry in all its forms.  To accept is to condone.

This week begins the American Library Association's Banned Book Week.  All of your favorite movels have been banned, somewhere, sometime, by someone.  By shining the light of truth on the oppressors of knowledge, the ALA attempts to make citizens aware of the many attacks on our liberty.  Support their good work.

Mark Twain's irony is never more apparent than the banning of Fahrenheit 451.
