I just know Dayvoe is gonna kick some ass at that event. Sorry I have to miss it this year. It's a fun, interesting time. If you miss it, as Mike Lang says, shame on you for six weeks.

The Bible is full of sex and violence so it must be Republicans who banned it.

BTW, what book is Dayvoe going to be reading?

Here's the ALA's list of the 10 most frequently banned books of 2006

If you want to delve deeper into the "banned canon" here's the ALA' list of the 100 most frequently banned books of the last decade

As for me; in honor of the late Kurt Vonnegut, I'm going to re-read "Slaughterhouse Five".

BTW, looking down the list, I couldn't help but notice #88. Can someone explain to me why in the world someone tried to ban "Where's Waldo?"
