Winding Up Banned Books Week 2013

As we wind up Banned Books Week 2013 I want to leave you with two quotations:

If you are not free to choose wrongly and irresponsibly, you are not free at all. - Jacob Hornberger

Books won't stay banned. They won't burn. Ideas won't go to jail. In the long run of history, the censor and the inquisitor have always lost. The only sure weapon against bad ideas is better ideas. The source of better ideas is wisdom. The surest path to wisdom is a liberal education. - Alfred Whitney Griswold

'Til next year. Have a good one.
