>Follow-Up to Banned Books Week

>”Alton Verm’s request to ban ‘Fahrenheit 451‘ came during the 25th annual Banned Books Week. He and Hines said the request to ban ‘Fahrenheit 451,’ a book about book burning, during Banned Books Weeks is a coincidence.”

Best line in the article:
“It’s just all kinds of filth,” said Alton Verm, adding that he had not read Fahrenheit 451.

I was glad to see, however, that the offended student proactively recommended her own substitute, “Ella Minnow Pea.”

Thanks to BoingBoing and Wandering Eyre.
