Banned Books Week

Denver has a very nice page up about banned books week here.

While the national page about banned books is interesting, this brings it home for the folks in the local area - a list of "challenged" books and publications - apparently Maxim offends some self-appointed busybody(s), LOL.

I wish they'd also talk about challenges on other issues, too - specifically, computer use . I know a common right-wing talking point at the national level of the Republican noise machine is to know what everyone is doing at all times on all computers at the library, or worrying about kids on Myspace or IM'ing or gaming, hence wasting "our tax money". And they also fret endlessly that people might be watching porn at the lib...I bet there are lots of war stories to share on the librarians' part.
