"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." - C.S. Lewis

Students Fired Up over Book Burning

US: High school students in Norwood, Colorado, staged an all-day sit-in to protest the removal of Rudolfo Anaya's Bless Me, Ultima from a ninth grade English classroom. Bob Conder, superintendent of schools, confiscated two dozen copies of the novel and threw them in trash cans. He later allowed a group of parents who complained about profanity in the novel to retrieve the books and burn them. Conder apologized for destroying the books, admitting he had never read the novel.
