I thought that the inquisition was over.
The list sounds like a very interesting summer reading list, though. :)
We must thank the conservatives for pullling this together.

Marking books as dangerous elevates their status, makes them credible risks,
overtly recognizes them as something in which someone else will read as
reasonable and that has great potential to cause harm.

I'm far more concerned about the twin teenage girls who are singing hate
songs, who have a following, and far above that, about the societal
conditions in which these lists, and songs, and children can happen.

Some things are, in deed, dangerous.
