Remember yesterday, when I told you about a dipshit with a funny name (Wesley Scroggins!) who decided that famous anti-war novel Slaughterhouse-Five was against the teachings of the Bible? Remember how Scroggins went on to have the book banned from a Missouri school district, because, as I said, he is a dipshit?
Today, the Kurt Vonnegut Library has announced that, thanks to an anonymous donor, they're giving free copies of Slaughterhouse-Five to every student in the school district who asks for one:
Please provide us with your name, address, and grade level...We think it’s important for everyone to have their First Amendment rights. We’re not telling you to like the book… we just want you to read it and decide for yourself. We will not share your request or any of your personal information with anyone else.
This is a great thing to do. If you'd like to help pay for the shipping and handling of these books, you should visit the Vonnegut Memorial Library website.
