Screening Will Go On at Enfield CT Library

The Enfield Public Library and town officials have reached a compromise that will allow a screening of the Michael Moore documentary "Sicko" about the American health care system.

Mayor Scott Kaupin tells The Associated Press that the library will show the movie in the next few weeks as part of a series that will include multiple points of view on controversial topics.

The library last week canceled a planned screening of the movie, which is critical of the U.S. health care system, after the Republican mayor and some town council members objected.

That led to accusations of censorship.

Kaupin says the issue was not whether the film should be shown, but whether the library should offer just one side of the health care debate.

Mayor Scott Kaupin

Funny after the Mayor was busted for censorship suddenly he changes the reason why he banned the movie in the first place! Republican hypocrisy at its finest! (wouldn't hold my breath waiting for the actual showing though!)

Maybe the Tea Party members will learn something.

Surprising

You mean theres no Republican/Tea Party funded documentary or movie railing against the idea that the poor should be forced to stand on their own two bullet ridden ricket soaked feet?
