Ban Gay Books

Read about this yet? Seems Republican Gerald Allen, who can be contacted at:

State House: Room 531
11 S. Union Street
Montgomery, AL 36130
(334) 242-7758 District: Post Office Box 71001
Tuscaloosa, AL 35407
Work Phone: (205) 556-5310
Home Phone: (205) 556-5310

wants to get rid of all the gay books, and has suggested burying them in a big hole. Now as a Gay Librarian, I do not think this is a good idea.

Does this whole banning books on a specific subject ring any bells to anyone? Hmm. Maybe its just because I'm Jewish too that it leaves a sinking feeling in my stomach.

N.B. All the information was taken from his homepage. I didn't have to do much digging to find it.

Moral of this blog: I can suggest a hole where I'd be happy to put a couple of gay books. Perhaps he'll learn by osmosis during the experience.
