    Don't know which thread this belongs on so I'll post it here and it can always be moved....

    ATLANTA - A suburban county that sparked a public outcry when its libraries temporarily eliminated funding for Spanish-language fiction is now being asked to ban Harry Potter books from its schools.

    Laura Mallory, a mother of four, told a hearing officer for the Gwinnett County Board of Education on Tuesday that the popular fiction series is an "evil" attempt to indoctrinate children in the Wicca religion.

    Board of Education attorney Victoria Sweeny said that if schools were to remove all books containing reference to witches, they would have to ban "Macbeth" and "Cinderella."

    OK, seriously, don't these idiot parents realize that instead of trying to ruin things for everyone else, maybe they could take that extra time and effort and spend it with their kids instead?

    I thought this was going to be a Styx thread.

    (And I agree with Alley. Looks like at least the board attorney is on Harry's side.)

    Just for the record, I would have no problem with any radio station choosing to ban "Too Much Time on My Hands" from its AOR or classic rock rotation.

    I thought this thread was about the people on this message board.
