Hi, Jessamyn.

I was checking out your journal entry on the episode of Palin's inquiring about getting books banned and scoped out the supposed list of targets one commentator had posted. I am very certain that list is cribbed from an old iteration of the list I keep. Every title on that list is on my own list, and the alphabetical format is the same, and I am aware that my list was copied at one point. The only difference I can see is that this list is formatted: Title [by] Author. I format my list Title[colon] Author. Of course once the page is saved in text format, a simple Search and Replace would account for that.

I have since extensively redone my list of banned or challenged works to break down it down on two pages; one for fiction and one for non-fiction. Here is the link so you can compare it to the one posted to your journal if you like:

Personally, I have no doubt that the charges of conspiracy to commit human rights violations and the attendant list are as phony as a promise from any of the liein', cheatin', thievin' scum and elected parasites on either side of the house/aisle/fence/whatever.
