Think of the Children!!!


I read this article yesterday by Lauren Evans of the Gothamist.  The quick and dirty of it: Some New York parents are celebrating their triumph over indecency by banning a book (are we still banning books?!?) because it covered such unthinkable topics as masturbation.  Can you imagine 11-year-olds learning about such things through school?

I encourage you to read Lauren’s article, and when you’re done with that revisit a classic.  And hope that one day the madness will end.

Also, thanks to Greg Toppo for tweeting about the article in the first place.
