why I am not surprised this is coming from Texas?

from the Houston Chronicle: "A new group has formed to address the selection and placement of books at the Montgomery County Memorial Library System, and it is targeting 120 works aimed at children and young adults. Called Library Patrons of Texas Inc., the group wants an age-appropriate policy at the system and targeting books with sexual and gay themes, as well as those with what the group says is offensive language." Read the rest.

"What the group says is offensive language?" What if I find their small-mindedness offensive? Can I remove them from the library?

If you don't want your kids to read certain books, go to the library with them and maybe PAY ATTENTION to their lives. Do not make choice for other people's children and DO NOT expect librarians to do your parenting for you!
