…to try to ban a book the DAY before Banned Books Week starts?
A district official in my very own old school district in California decided last Friday that Stephenie Meyer’s “Twilight” series was not appropriate for junior high and ordered all copies of her books in any of the 12 junior highs in the district be sent to the district offices.

Thank you ma’am. I’m glad you’ve decided that not a single middle school student is capable of reading and processing “Twilight.” Where on earth would these children be without you? Who else could parent them in such a capable manner. Oh. Right. They have actual parents that aren’t you.
Don’t think that Twilight should be in junior high libraries? Look into it a little bit before you purchase the damn thing. I’ve heard there’s this thing called the ‘internet’ where people talk about books, including often their content.
