In honor of Sarah Palin

Banned Books Week Banner
Originally uploaded by DML East Branch

In honor of Sarah Palin, I share with you this Banned Books Week Banner, used each year by DML East Branch library. They created the banner "with 99 of the 100 most banned books for the years 1990 - 2000."

The posting on the flickr site says, "We feel the best way to support your freedom to read is to make sure no one else makes that choice for you."

Like, for instance, the Republican candidate for vice-president. We've had enough dumbing down of the nation during the Bush administration. Don't allow Palin the opportunity to restrict our access to books, to science, to knowledge.
