Irony So Thick It Will Reach Out and Kick Your Butt

A friend sent me this story from the Conroe Courier, a paper from the North Houston area near where I grew up. It tickles the irony bone immensely when people try to ban Fahrenheit 451. Seriously people. Do you not realize the farce you start by opening that conversation? Do you? No, because you probably never saw past the “bad language” to actually read the story.

Sometimes, I hate people. They are funny, but, oh Lord, please save me from them.

A side tidbit: I used to substitute teach at Caney Creek High School.

–Jane, crazy, crazy world

    You have to read the comments (there were two when I visited). Hi-freaking-hilarious.

    Oops, I meant to say “hi-freaking-larious.”

    Thanks to ranger for pointing out the comments, esp. the second one. You talk about another point of view! I guess the book *is* about “government compulsion”. So, is it as bad for the government to compel you to read a book as it is for it to compel you to *not* read one?
