The school board in Republic, Missouri has bowed to the wishes of a ridiculously named jackass:
The board voted 4-0 recently to ban Slaughterhouse-Five and another book, Sarah Ockler’s Twenty Boy Summer, after a local resident complained...Wesley Scroggins had originally targeted three books, but the board voted to keep one, Laurie Halse Anderson’s award-winning Speak, on the shelves. According to the Springfield News-Leader, Scroggins “challenged the use of the books and lesson plans in Republic schools, arguing they teach principles contrary to the Bible.”
"Wesley Scroggins" practically sounds like a Vonnegut character. And, hey: Since Slaughterhouse-Five is one of the greatest anti-war books ever written, does that mean that the Bible is pro-war?
