Celebrate banned books week

The electronic parade of moronic talking heads who want to legislate morality for the rest of us is seemingly endless. Unfortunately, it's not in our power to reach inside the television set and smack them silly. So here's the next best thing: join with the American Library Association--that most sinister bunch of subversives--and celebrate Banned Books Week.

We inhabit crazy times. Take a gander at this list of the most frequently challenged books and you have to wonder about our tether to reality. Maybe somebody's been spiking the water supply with LSD. Or it could be the depleted ozone layer is letting dangerous rays further fry our already diminished brains.
