Just A Lot of Air Pollution

Seems weird that it would take a presidential speech to get this point across: information is free, and you're free to disregard it, too. What's the point of burning a book? It just generates unnecessary smoke, it won't make the information disappear...

HAPPY BANNED BOOKS WEEK!

I have talked to patrons here at the library who truly believe that suppressing information will somehow make facts go away. I get the kind of people who get a little worried about something their kid has read, but the fact-modifiers scare me.
