In the Atlanta area, we have a special kind of idiot. Many (most?) of them live in Gwinnett County. Here’s one now:
The “Harry Potter” book series may soon be taken off the shelves of all media centers in Gwinnett County Public Schools if a parent’s appeal is successful. A parent of students at J.C. Magill Elementary School filed appeal forms for each of the books, requesting the wildly popular series be removed from public school libraries. On the forms, she wrote that she objected to the series’ “evil themes, witchcraft, demonic activity, murder, evil blood sacrifice, spells and teaching children all of this.” She wrote she had not read the series because it is long, and she is a working mother of four.
It seems to be a rule that the parents have not even read the books when they file this kind of appeal. They just know that they are wrong, wrong, wrong.
