A Different Approach to Banned Books Week

This Saturday marks the beginning of Banned Books Week. While I share the belief in intellectual freedom that inspires BBW, I dissent from ALA on where the main threat to that ideal comes from. Let's just say that I believe there are far greater threats to intellectual freedom in this world than idiots who want the Harry Potter books removed from their local school media center. I'll have more in a few days. In the meantime, Freadom has an excellent post on ways to support those who are struggling for intellectual freedom in other nations.
