Study in Scarlet banned in US

Wow, some school in Virginia actually banned "Study in Scarlet"!

For alleged "anti-mormonism". 


I cannot live without brainwork. What else is there to live for? Stand at the window there. Was there ever such a dreary, dismal, unprofitable world? See how the yellow fog swirls down the street and drifts across the dun-coloured houses. What could be more hopelessly prosaic and material? What is the use of having powers, Doctor, when one has no field upon which to exert them?

So much for the First Amendment eh! 

Don't make people into heroes John. Heroes don't exist and if they did I wouldn't be one of them.

I would like to personally apologize for the random idiots in my country.

I'm sorry.

But look at it the other way and put a positivie spin on it: Being in the same (banned) group as Huck Finn, Catcher in the Rye, and Slaughterhouse Five is a great accomplishment!    (Though it still doesn't obviate the fact that those who object to these books being read by kids are idiots.)
