Harry Potter on Most Challenged List

J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series was named to the list of "most challenged" books of the 21st century by the American Library Association in conjunction with Banned Books Week.

Not surprisingly, Of Pandas and People, the so-called intelligent design textbook didn't make the list. Discovery Institute claims to contrary, no one has filed a formal, written complaint with a library or school requesting that Pandas be removed because of content or appropriateness, and as far as anyone can tell, it hasn't been removed from a single library shelf.

Far right fundamentalist, anti-evolution activists in Kansas have been busy on the censorship front, however. Citizens for Literary Standards in Schools has developed a long list of books they want to ban from the Blue Valley School District in Johnson County.
