AIDS Book Pulled From School Library After Complaint - Nashville News Story - WSMV Nashville

Interesting that this school's book banning decision (click for an article and video on the story) was to assume the book was the culprit and immediately pull it from the library's shelves, rather than the censor as the problem. Cheatham Middle School Principal Dr. Beth Batson buckled to the pressure of parent Misty Binkley, who had determined that because she doesn't want her 7th grader to read Borrowed Time: An AIDS Memoir, then no middle school students should be allowed to read it.
