This is in response to JoAn Karkos’ theft of a book called “It’s Perfectly Normal” from the Auburn and Lewiston libraries. She doesn’t approve of the book.

I think I’ll go to a library and steal some books written by Republicans. Then, perhaps, my Republican friends could steal books written by Democrats. Perhaps the Muslims would like to see books about Christianity vanish, and I’m sure extremist Christians could come up with a huge list of books they would like to see disappear.

I found math boring when I was in school. Maybe I’ll go steal some math books so that kids don’t have to be exposed to that subject at the library.

That was a brilliant idea.
