I just had to post this...

I was surfing along on Blogexplosion and I came across this post on ABROAD AT HOME. It contains a link to a list of banned books in the state of Texas. Yes, you heard me, banned books. So much for the glorious freedoms found in America. Check out the list; you will laugh when you come across a book or two that you fondly remember from your younger years. Now I see where Dubya gets it...

Wow. They banned an S.E. Hinton book! Admittedly my least favourite of all but still. Very sad.

Hmm, sad they banned such books as the Color Purple, That was then, this is now, and Just the 2 of us by Will Smith.
Smith must have been dinged for his frequent use of the word "ehh"
