From the "People are retards" file

Two news items:
  • Family stunned by adult comics at library - Parents in Barstow are kicking up a fuss about a book on manga that contains depictions of sexual acts. The librarian rightly points out that parenting is not the library's job, it is the parents', but that argument has never really kept people from spreading blame before.
  • Man held as terrorism suspect in London...for singing along with a song by The Clash. Just when you thought people couldn't get any more paranoid.


EDIT: Good will never win because evil is stupid but persistent. district supervisors have ordered the book removed from the shelves and want librarians to draft a plan for systematic censorship. "The councilman was quick to say he does not believe in censorship of books, but was also clear to point out the need to protect underage library members from explicit content." Yeah, that's what they always say...
