In a day where Internet filtering is mandatory to secure government funding, it is almost quaint to hear when someone decides to ban a book. Really? A book? Who sees these as threats anymore? When half our youth can barely string together a sentence in an email without L33T speak filtering down, I love that people still see books as dangerous commodities. I love that the book, the best form of technology we have ever created, is still a monster of ideas and change.
John Ciardi said, "The public library is the most dangerous place in town." Indeed, sir.
