Like Mushrooms

The San Francisco Examiner reports that the Burlingame, Cal. school distrit has banned Kaffir Boy, a book about about South African apartheid. The book, deemed too graphic for students there, describes the oppressive hardship and violence of apartheid.

Reality, it seems, is just to difficult for students to grapple with. First we prevent high school students from learning anything about the world. Then, soon as they graduate, we ship them off to Iraq.

Quite a plan.
