On his blog, my brother Tod fills out the questionnaire the Citizens For Literary Standards are sending to candidates for the Blue Valley School Board in Overland Park, KS. His answers to their self-serving questions makes for good reading… which, of course, means it would be banned if these "citizens" had their way.
The Citizens for Literary Standards, you may recall, seek to "inform parents and the community about poor quality literature and vulgar subject matter (profanity, sex, occultism) in graded reading assignments." Books these LitNazis want to ban from high school include such "poor quality literature" as ALL THE PRETTY HORSES, ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO’S NEST, BELOVED, LORDS OF DISCIPLINE, CATCHER IN THE RYE, OF MICE AND MEN, and I KNOW WHY THE CAGED BIRD SINGS.
It makes sense to me. As we all know, reading CATCHER IN THE RYE has turned generations of Americans into Satan-worshipping, drug-addicted, sociopathic liberals.
