School libraries have to make careful choices when they decide what books to put in the library.  They have limited space and funds.  I said in the summary above that I am not in favor of banning any book from school libraries...but I say this with the realization that choices have to be made, and they should be made with due consideration for the educational value of said books, and the likely appropriateness and relevance to the kids reading them.

Be that as it may, none of these things seem to be a concern for a member of the Wichita School board.  This is the same lady that demanded that an icon of his Sublime Starchyness (The Flying Spaghetti Monster) be removed from a classroom door.

Now, she is demanding that any book that talks about suicide or deals with the topic, contains vulgar or immoral behavior, etc...should be removed from the library.

Anyway, here's the article.

Well, that leaves out the Bible.  Judas hanged himself.  Abraham fornicated with a servant girl at his wife's suggestion (open relationship).  Solomon set the world record for bigamy, and Noah got drunk off his can and passed out nekked.  Oh, and Mary Magdaline was a whore.  Oh, and Mary the mother of Jesus was a teenaged unwed mother.  King David had Urias killed so David could doink Urias' wife.  The Apostle Paul held the coats for his posse while they put the smack-down on Christians and stoned them to death (before he got apostlized)

That's just what I remember from Sunday school.
