Welcome to Banned Books Week

This is the ALA's Banned Books Week, so I figure I should note that. Maybe I'll re-read Daniel Clowes's Ice Haven (the original comics version of which just got a Connecticut high school English teacher fired) to celebrate.

(If there are any kids out there, I'll recommend what I did as a teenager: printing out a copy of the current version of the 100 Most Frequently Challenged Books list, and reading as many of them as you can. You'll probably hate some of them -- I've never much like The Diary of Anne Frank, I'm afraid -- but it's a great education in what other people don't want you to think about.)
