I've got the challenged book blues...

This is one of the funniest but most disturbing articles I've read lately (and these are funny, disturbing times, people).

Talk about taking censorship to a whole new level! Evidently a man's two teenaged sons were so emotionally scarred by reading a book about lesbian sex they found in the library (while they were with their father, no less) that not only is he demanding that the book be removed from the library's shelves; he is also suing the city for $20,000 in damages. Puh-leez.

What cheered me up considerably after reading the article were all the readers' comments at the end.

  1. yeah. this guy sounds like someone who's upset that he's losing moral authority with his kids and wants to lash out at someone. ... particularly because he wants money for it. that just seems shady.
