Personally, I Liked Huckleberry Finn

The Anchorage Daily News has a nice rundown of Sarah Palin’s troublesome history of censorship.

Back in 1996, when she first became mayor, Sarah Palin asked the city librarian if she would be all right with censoring library books should she be asked to do so.

According to news coverage at the time, the librarian said she would definitely not be all right with it. A few months later, the librarian, Mary Ellen Emmons, got a letter from Palin telling her she was going to be fired.

People For has a long history of standing up against book banning, so we’re not amused.

Just asking: If public libraries are the cradles of democracy, what does that make Sarah Palin?
