A Place Where Wisconsinites Can Get Vocal
They were not kidding. Lots of stingrays flitting about....
I know this is off topic, but...You were among my choices to receive the "Honest Scrap Award" for your blog. It seems a bit like a chain letter, but it brightened my day and I hope it will brighten yours as well to know that I find your blog brilliant in design/content or encouraging.Call Me MomHere are the guidelines for accepting the award:In accepting this award, I need to do the following:1) Say thanks and give a link to the presenter of the award.2) Share "ten honest things" about myself.3) Present this award to 7 others whose blogs I find brilliant in content and/or design, or those who have encouraged me.4) Tell those 7 people that they've been awarded HONEST SCRAP and inform them of these guidelines in receiving it.
What's the name of the book you are reading in that last sentence? I want to make sure that I ask that it be removed to a sequestered part of the library and only those brave enough to ask will be allowed access. I'm sure I'd find the book objectionable.
Hahn...lighten up will ya?Also, if you really want that book removed let's ask the c o m m u n i t y .
The c o m m u n i t y has nothing to do with library collection development - that is the job of professional librarians. You don't like the title? Don't read it. You don't want your kids to read it? Parent your own children and censor what they read. But it is not your right nor your responsibility to inflict your narrow-mindedness on ANYONE else.
Anonymous - nice you hide behind your anonymity. All the best cowards do it.The INDIVIDUAL does not have the right to determine what the other INDIVIDUALS should have access to. Take personal responsibility for yourself and your family - and leave others to do the same.
Begging your pardon, Cristo, but as adults, (I am assuming we are all adults), we do have a responsibility to protect those who are not able to protect themselves. You know, like children? Are you saying that if your neighbor heard one of her children yell for help in the front yard and ran to them, you would watch as her now unattended toddler was harmed by her absence because it's her job to parent and protect him/her?Or perhaps you're implying that you should allow your neighbor to abuse their child because it's their job to parent and protect their children, not yours?In one's own home, one may decide to expose one's children to whatever reading material one chooses, but in a publicly shared forum such as a library, the reading material should be acceptable to the community as a whole. The library staff does not have the freedom to choose material that the community finds objectionable or harmful, nor may they disregard the law in their choices. I think there is a legal, moral and ethical duty in our communities to protect children from harm.
