Sandra, or Sarah Who's Book Hit List

The formatting on this list disappeared in cut/pasting, but as a concession to the brevity of life I'm going to leave it the way it is. It's worth the trouble to read, though. I got it from a librarian web site.

This is the list of books Palin tried to have banned. As many of you will notice it is a hit parade for book burners.

"Canterbury Tales?" What is she thinking? "Little Red Riding Hood?" What is it about the other Bro's Grimm tales that gets a pass?
