Banning Tango

Banning Tango

by

Happy Banned Books Week, wherein we honor the fear-induced idiocy of
banning books - which might actually offend, inform or otherwise
influence someone somewhere - by reading them. Banned in the past have
been those cauldrons of sexual and religious evil like "The Grapes of
Wrath," "To Kill A Mockingbird," "Catcher In The Rye," "Beloved," and,
the most banned of all time, "And Tango Makes Three," a kids' book
about real gay penguins at Central Park Zoo. Read something from the
full list here. Or see a map of what's been banned where here.
