A closer look at filtering

Someone wrote in with this interesting opinion

\"In today\'s local paper http://www.thetimesonline.com we are unfortunately headline news. You can find the story HERE If you click on news there are additional stories. The one concerning us is entitled \"Lansing trustees want library computers filtered\". If it full of misinformation. The Mayor has NEVER been in the library recently. He never even picked up the telephone to ask questions. We have NEVER had an unfiltered terminal so we certainly never moved it. We only have 6 terminals not 10.

In yesterday\'s paper, same URL, there is a guest editorial from {Someone}, a local resident, who is heading the campaign against the library. Her editorial is entitled \"Bring the Internet to the public library, but take out the trash first\". You may want to note her shopping list of sites OTHER than pornography that she wants to censor.

SHE is the reason it has taken so long to bring the internet to our library. SHE is the one who promised legal action if she ever walking in and found unfiltered internet access at the library. \"
