After a disagreement with the Independent Publishers Group, Amazon pulled the publisher's titles (nearly 5000) from its market. This comes nearly a month after Amazon's own books were pulled from the chain bookstore Barnes and Nobles.
This brings to mind a problem we had last year with the Bannville Ladies Auxillary quilt display. Edna Snarffle and Betsy Farmer, co-heads of the BLA nearly came to blows over a quilt constructed of various 80s band tour shirts. The quilt, titled Band Stand, was made by Ms. Snarffle from her collection of shirts that had worn thin over the last 30 years of wear and tear. The quilt as a whole was not the issue as there is always a t-shirt quilt somewhere in the mix. The issue came when Mrs. Farmer objected to the inclusion of both pre- and post- David Lee Roth Van Halen t-shirts. Mrs. Farmer, a supporter of Mr. Roth, objected to the quilt as a matter of principle. The Ladies Auxillary was nearly torn in two, along with the quilt, until it was removed from the collection and placed in the geneology room where a sign was displayed, "Band Stand Quilt inside, possibly offensive."
