The ghost of James Madison is NOT amused!
Recently, certain counties in Florida banned E.L. James' 50 Shades of Grey from their public libraries and now the book’s publisher is outraged.
In a statement, Random House said:
“[Random House] fervently opposes literary censorship and supports the First Amendment rights of readers to make their own reading choices."
So do we!!
As the founding fathers drafted the Bill of Rights, they took care to ensure us jury trials and the freedom to practice whatever religion we chose… but surely they were MOST concerned with protecting our right to rent softcore soccer-mom porn with a library card!! LOLz!
Free speech is no laughing matter but, uhh, seriously, reading a used copy of 50 Shades that someone else already abused is pretty
Just buy your own!!
And don't forget to picture Ian Somerhalder whilst you read!
