"A parent can't read a 400-page-book to find out if it's appropriate," Wilmott said. "You rely on your school to do that for you."

I honestly have no word to describe how this makes me feel. It's sort of violent hatred mixed with soul crushing depression.

Hatepressed?  Demurderous?

I bet there is a German word for it.

dustygrimp: When did Neil Gaiman become required reading?


I am just amazed that they require reading in Arizona.

Quantum Apostrophe: lockers: Talos: I've never understood the philosophy where ONE (ignorant) parent can make an entire school system adjust their teaching curriculum.

Gaze on the glory of appeasement. Never will you see a weaker will then one who would rather not fight at all.

THAN you farking tards.

I think it's a great book, but it does seem a somewhat odd choice for required reading.

Maybe they should split the list into options; one for kids who want to someday move out of Alamogordo, New Mexico, and one for those who don't.

Wow.


What? Is I haven't read it but I object to it not a sound argument?

There is a New Mexico? How fast can we get a border fence around that?

astrochelonian: I read Neverwhere on my own initiative at age 16 and I remember it being spooky & awesome, but I don't remember anything explicit.


Obviously you are mistaken.  The mom in the story will find you and beat you senseless for being so oblivious to the damage that the book has done to your brain.

Kids get to read Neil Gaiman in school now??  I mean, I got stuck with "Of Mice and Men" and "The Old Man and the Sea."  I had to find all the good literature, that didn't feel like they were ripping years out of my soul, on my own.

I'm torn between my fierce love of the First Amendment and my belief that people should be spared being forced to read Neil F*CKING Giaman's overrated tripe.

Hobodeluxe: I know a book that has volumes of violence,torture,rape and sex in it that she would probably love to be required reading.

I love how one woman with a stick up her ass can get a book banned because she says it offends her. That school has hundreds of mother's who are fine with the book, but because one mother is offended it MUST be banned! Schools cave so easy and are just generally run by complete idiots with their zero tolerance policies, etc.

You're offended? SO F*CKING WHAT????

Actually, yes. Yes they can. And what was wrong/explicit in Neverwhere?


Well it does imply that it's wrong to ignore the suffering of street/homeless people.  So it's pretty anti-American Jesus (TM).

Looks like the kids in Las Cruses will be much more mature and able to read 400 page books than their Alamogordo rivals.

Seriously, woman? If you have issues with reading such a ginormous book, then perhaps you have no business poking about with literature at all.
