More on the Banning Attempt

Many links on the attempt to ban How To Get Suspended and Influence People, one of which includes video, and most of which have several comments. I'm fairly pleased by the tone of the comments so far - even the people I strongly disagree with seem fairly articulate. There hasn't been much of the poorly-spelled hate speech that you see so often on anonymous comment forms (like the fake one here), though there HAVE been a few "nazi" remarks - those come up in most online discussions, and they're almost always out of bounds (there's a whole section on this in The Smart Aleck's Guide to American History.
Anyway, follow the hoopla at these links:

CBS 2 (youtube)

Idaho Press

The Stranger (very supportive comments, but some NSFW language)

Idaho Statesman

Fox 12

Bookshelves of Doom

In other news, I'll be talking about ghosts and history on a major national radio show next week. Stay tuned!
