A resident of Douglas County, Colorado, “challenged” — which is to say, requested removal — a book she found at her library, Uncle Bobby’s Wedding, which is at least partially about gay marriage. The librarian there, Jamie LaRue,┬áhas a blog, and has posted his response, and it is truly a model of measured calm and rational argument in the face of would-be censorship.

  One Response to “Call and response”

  1. The mayor came and read “Uncle Bobby’s Wedding,” along with a book called “All Families Are Special,” at the local library. Everyone loved it. Of course it was Pride Week, and the mayor is openly “out,” so I think people had some grasp of the theme beforehand. The rainbow posters didn’t hurt either.

    Yay for anthropomophized gay guinea pigs! And as always, yay for librarians!
