Apparently the new VP candidate Sarah Palin tried to ban books in her hometown and fire a librarian. So as you can imagine the librarian listserves are full of comments and posts.
Here is the blurb from the Time Magazine (posted on 9/2/08) article…
“…Palin continued to inject religious beliefs into her policy at times. “She asked the library how she could go about banning books,” he says, because some voters thought they had inappropriate language in them. “The librarian was aghast.” That woman, Mary Ellen Baker, couldn’t be reached for comment, but news reports from the time show that Palin had threatened to fire Baker for not giving “full support” to the mayor.”
