Potter Books Getting Yanked Again?
Here's one I saw at Veritaserum. It was TOO funny Not to mention, so! Here it is.
There's a big uproar in Georgia, as some are trying to get our beloved Potter books off the shelves, YET again.
This one, as amusing as most, as the 'leader'- Ms. Mallory has never bothered to read any of them. Although, this one actually admitted her own stupidity, which is something most don't go so far as to say it. She openly claims that: they're "really very long". Pretty bad, as there are some as young as 8years old who can manage to read the whole book(s).
Also, she claims that it would be "hypocritical for me to read them".
I truly do love the raving, mad ones who even claim to have no idea of what they're talking about. She of course, is bein tedious in claiming as all other anti-HP fanatics, that the book has 'evil themes' throughout. --Always a tough claim when you've never done your research. ;)

But there is backup to help stand against these actions.
Many Gwinnett Harry Potter fans, including students and parents, were shocked when they heard about the possibility of the books being taken off school shelves.
Jessica Grimes, a 10-year-old student at Duncan Creek Elementary School, faxed a letter to the school system in support of the books series. “The books never at any time turned me into a wizard or witch,” Grimes said. “I go to church every Sunday, go to Sunday school and never at any time did I think the books are true.”

TOO cute, and too true. It'd be nice, if just Once adults would try listening to the youth.:/ Here's to hoping!

The Gwinnett County Board of Education will decide whether or not the books should remain in the district's school libaries during the coming weeks.
