Highlighting on of Our Favorite Links

Next week is "Banned Books Week" - so celebrate the week by reading or re-reading one of our favorite books banned by some small minded individual or group, and checking out the Banned Books site. (It is a permanent link from this site - under "Censorship."

Some of these writers have had the dubious distinction of being banned in their own countries as well as this one. It's shameful that a country which fought Communist totalitarianism in the Cold War continues to indulge totalitarians in its midst. Call them by their name--that's what they are.
