NOTE TO SELF : Never Name a Child "Rita".

I'm ducking in real quick just to share a little something.

Check out this column, written by the Globe staff, regarding Banned Book Week.

Nothing unusual, right? Blah blah blah censorship is bad let's stick it to those prudish dillweeds blah blah blah. Just celebrating one of the few American holidays (holiweeks?) that is totally pure in its intention and loved by everyone, amirite?

I am right. But that's not what I'm blogging about. I'm blogging about the comments.

Can you believe I had never heard even one peep in disapproval of Banned Book Week before? Usually book banning dweebs are all like "We're not in favor of book banning-- except in this ONE CASE" or more often "we're not banning books, it's the (other political side) that's doing it!"

For some reason they usually leave this holiweek alone. Now there's three people (in all seriousness) saying that book banning is GOOD, Banned Book Week is BAAAD.

Goddamn I hate these people.
