Apparently Banned Books Week is no longer necessary:http://tinyurl.com/ybzz277
Or is it? http://tinyurl.com/ydohgyo
Sex and violence (so prevalent in movies, music and, well, the daily news) top the list of reasons why a book is unsuitable: http://tinyurl.com/ybbfky5
Read a banned or challenged book this week. Find out what the fuss is all about. You might learn more than you bargained for.

Times are tough pretty much all the way around these days, but wouldn't it make more sense for people to help one another out in any little way they can (sometimes it is the smallest gestures which are the most meaningful) rather than hurt one another?
Maybe it is supposed to be survival of the fittest (or the most devious? or the most desperate?), but mutual relationships benefit everyone.
Such is my naive hope for the day.
