09:10 am - Book challenge report

This is the ACLU's Book Challenge Report (PDF) for Texas K-12 schools this year.

My most WTF?! moment came when I read that Drug Related Diseases by Barbara Hughes was challenged. The description is "Discusses a number of drugs, including alcohol, cocaine,heroin, and amphetamines, and the health problems that may result from their use or abuse." Yeah, banning the book that explains how these things can be bad for you makes total sense. (The report says the result was "Use Restricted," with no explanation for how it was restricted.)

I'm not entirely sure what chain of clicks led me to this cheap EMF meter on Amazon being sold as a ghost-hunting tool, but I'm glad it ended this way, as many of the reviews are hilarious.

snarp is rereading Anne Bishop so you don't have to.
