How Low Can Censorship Go?
You have to laugh, otherwise you'll cry. A January 27th story on MSNBC.com relates how a school district in Riverside County, California, actually pulled the Miriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary after a parent complained that it defined the term "oral sex."

I can just picture it, "oh, no, Johnny, you can't use the book all the other kids are using, here's the dictionary your mother said you can use."
