Zavalla High School Says ‘No’ To Reading Ban!
Kudos going out to Zavalla High School students who celebrated "Banned Books Week" by turning nonsense into freedom of speech, and electing to enforce their right to read whatever they want.
A banned book is just that, meaning that a group of people believing in Reverend Shaw Moore's (Footloose) social culture, have successfully removed the title from the library shelf. These same folks obviously didn't watch the whole movie -- where the Reverend, at an impromptu book burning event -- tells his disciples, that "Satan is not in hea (that's the way it sounded to me), referring to the books.
According to school librarian, Aubree Tamez, the number one criminal text in 2012, belongs to the "Harry Potter" series. Incredible, huh?
I just want to know where I can get one of those "I read banned books" T-shirt.
The good news here is that the American Library Association is in its 30th year waging war against those that think "To Kill A Mockingbird" is vile.
