While I don't believe in banning books EVER, I sometimes understand the motivation behind the desire to do so. But not this time. This one is just plain dumb.

A woman in Minnesota has requested that the comic book, Bone, be removed from the shelves of her son's school library. Now, I have read Bone (thanks again to Ticknart for that!), and there is nothing remotely offensive in that book. In fact, I think there's more offensive and sexually-laden material in an Archie comic. Bone is just a great read for all ages.

My favorite thing is this response from Bone creator, Jeff Smith:
"My conclusion is that some people aren't smart enough to read comic books."
