No More Peanuts!! (Peppermint Patty, Don't You Know)

A story out of Alabama reports that a Republican Alabama lawmaker has proposed a bill that would prohibit public school libraries from buying copies of books or plays "by gay authors or about gay characters."

While mostly lefty-liberal, I have some sympathy for those on the far right, who've seen, in the past ten to twenty years in particular, what they consider to be core moral values disintegrating. I'm thrilled that it's happening, to be clear, but I can almost see their point of view. But this is just remarkable. I don't actually imagine that the bill would ever get passed, but nonetheless, that it could get entertained, in this day and age, is just a wee bit frightening.

Until Whenever
