What is WRONG with the South?!
Come on…stupid book banning stuff happens everywhere. Anoka Minnesota tried to ban Eleanor & Park, somewhere in New Mexico wanted to ban Neverwhere, The Chocolate War and The Handmaid’s Tale seem to be regularly attacked all over our geography…
My library in New York has had to deal with a few attempts at censorship. Some of the complaints we get are just as bizarre as this one (although, admittedly, the person who said we shouldn’t stock any books by Arabs was clinically insane).
On the other hand, the next time someone says that liberals are always banning speakers they don’t like, I might point to this incident in Texas:
Yeah, but I just meant in general. :-)
Expecting an indignant reply from Tonio Kruger in 3… 2… 1…
I’m not quite sure what I’ve ever said on this forum to make you think I’m especially pro-South, Bluejay.
After all, I was born in Detroit.
However, if you ever do find out what’s wrong with the South, please let me know. I’ve been trying to figure that out for years.
My theory is: The people in the South watched Big Fish, and when they heard those terrible Southern accents, their minds became completely unhinged.
It’s pornographic when one enjoys it too much, I guess.
Look I’m trying to figure out what is wrong with ALL of us. My whole life. Sometimes, I’m wondering what the hell is wrong with me.
I’m all for people staying wrong, but, they don’t get to inflict it on others.
