You are not related to the Eccles of the famous BBC Radio Goon Show by any chance? That would surely get you a few looks at B&N.

Since the new president came on board. There was a big fit of couch and car burning after a football game, and so they banned couches on porches.

Cycjiec, you said, "Going back a few years, conservative librarians have felt constrained to write and publish anonymously (several articles in the Jewish Press come to mind)."

Would you please provide links to such articles?

Whatever happened to the "dissent" and "alternative voices" the left always talks about? Their motto should be:

Free speech for me but not for thee

It is the "faculty" who are feeling "unsafe." The male librarian is the one who is sticking his neck out here to promote a balanced reading list. He is definitely NOT a wussie. Get your facts straight. Maybe you should ask a male librarian to teach you how to read.

I have been in a very long conversation with authors about whether sexually inappropriate books should be moved out of the children's section of public libraries. In the context of that conversation, I made the following comments relevant to this Scott Savage story, and tell me if you agree:

Back in that cease and desist letter we see an exhibit, a letter from one professor Norman Jones. Jones wrote how the book Scott Savage recommended was “anti-gay” and “homophobic tripe” because the book contained the following quote: “the widely revered father of the ‘sexual revolution’ [Dr. Kinsey] has been irrefutably exposed as a full-fledged sexual psychopath who encouraged pedophilia.”

Do you see how this insidious, devious attack works? No? Scott Savage never said word one, nothing, that was “homophobic.” Yet it is ascribed to him as if he said it. That having been done, he is then attacked for having said it. But he never did! Look closely at that quote again. Do you see anything, anything at all about homosexuals? I see psychopaths and pedophiles but no homosexuals. The professor made it up! Worse, the professor makes the logical connection between pedophiles and homosexuals!! This is blatantly wrong!! But he does it, then he says Scott Savage does it, then he accuses Scott Savage of being “homophobic” and “anti-gay”!

Now I’m just one person. In all my experience I never heard of a homosexual pedophile. All the pedophiles I know in the news are heterosexual. Labeling homosexuals as pedophiles is not only factually wrong, but it is a common misconception about homosexuals that is used to attack them. And here, here we see a professor saying that a book about a “psychopathic pedophile” is homophobic. It’s the professor himself that connects the pedophilia to the homophobia. He’s the offender here. Yet he ascribed this to the librarian, then attacks the librarian as if the librarian said this! Frankly, this appears to me to be a latent attack on homosexuals by OSU Professor Norman Jones.

"The profs should feel unsafe, especially after a few students read the books."

The profs have taken care of that...only a few of the students CAN read.

Haven't heard from you in a while, how are things?

Funny that an Amish librarian is getting hit with a sexual harassment charge.

When I left Houston Texas...

When I lived in the Houston environs, businessmen still felt free to place classified ads asking for "Gal Friday with oil company front office looks"! My, my, times have changed in 20 years!
