Ten Banned Books

Banned Books Week is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read. Typically held during the last week of September, it highlights the value of free and open access to information. Banned Books Week brings together the entire book community –- librarians, booksellers, publishers, journalists, teachers, and readers of all types –- in shared support of the freedom to seek and to express ideas, even those some consider unorthodox or unpopular.  You may want to check out this great MSN video – 10 Banned Books.

  1. Speaking of the supression of freedom of speech, what do you think about the arrest of Nakoula Basseley. If you looked at the part that was on you-tube it was a pretty crappy short. The problem is that if I had the power to jail EVERYONE who made a crappy movie there would be a lot of Hollywood producers in jail awaiting execution. Oh by the way they brought back the “art exhibit” known as “Piss Jesus” but as of yet I have not heard of Christians organizing massive protests repleate with brutal murders as a result. Then again the murder of our Diplomat really wasn’t about a movie, crappy or otherwise. It was a terrorist attack. Remember what I told you, today’s Democrats are not your Daddy’s Democrats.
