Apparently there are people, librarians no less, who think that children between the ages of nine and twelve should not be exposed to the word “scrotum” in a book. Even if it’s a dog’s scrotum.

Link: ¬ª scrotum! I originally rambled on here about the daftness of all this, but I’ve deleted it - Neil Gaiman has covered the whole topic very well in these three posts, so if you’re interested, read on:

  2. A Special Obligation…
  3. The last last word

It’s not easy to be a brave librarian in areas where book burning mobs can camp outside your door.
