Thank goodness we live in a community that values freedom of choice in reading material.

As a child I read well above my grade level. Growing up in the 1950s during the communist ‘scares’, I remember that my teachers had to sign loyalty oaths. At about 11, one of my teachers talked about the Smith Act, and then going to my local library, finding the correct law book, to see what this ‘act’ was about.

There are similarities between banning books and passing laws to control other persons bodies. If we live in a democracy, then no person or elected body should have the right to determine what I do or read than does not personally affect their choices as to how they lead their lives.
