  1. Stay alert: with the current behavior of this country, book banning could well happen again…or book burning and the suppression of the free press.

    Whoever says “climate” change in THIS country is a hoax hasn’t dared to really see REAL children in cages as a problem. Our political climate has indeed shifted as surely as the ice in Antarctica….And it is time for the rest of us to stand up and be counted.

  2. I always wonder if the idiots who censor and ban books realize that all they are doing is making more people want to read it. It’s like free publicity for the author. If I’d written a book and wanted people to know about it, I’d pray for it to be banned somewhere, et voila! Instant readers!
