Bring Marshmallows

We're going to have a book burning in Wisconsin. Some folks calling themselves the Christian Civil Liberties Union have demanded that a young adult book called Baby Be-Bop be removed from the West Bend Community Memorial Library and publicly burned. Fortunately, it seems that most of the good people of West Bend are standing up to these zipperheads and backing their library. I think the forces of good will win this fight, but it bears watching. You never know when someone is going to try to go all Alexandria on your library. Evil, intolerance, and zealotry will always be with us. Eternal vigilance really is the price of freedom.
