It's About Time...

...that someone stood up to the evil that is Harry Potter.

Ga. mother seeks Harry Potter ban.

A suburban county that sparked a public outcry when its libraries temporarily eliminated funding for Spanish-language fiction is now being asked to ban Harry Potter books from its schools.

Laura Mallory, a mother of four, told a hearing officer for the Gwinnett County Board of Education on Tuesday that the popular fiction series is an "evil" attempt to indoctrinate children in the Wicca religion.

Let's hope that little things like Constitutional liberties, a respect for literature, or properly functioning brain cells don't get in way of this brave attempt at censorship.
