Umm, Suicide Bunnies?

Got your attention, I reckon’

After more than an hour of debate, the Central Linn School Board found itself split on a motion to remove the divisive “Book of Bunny Suicides” from library shelves.

With a 3-3 vote, the board decided to take up the issue again in January, when all seven members will be present.

The book is a collection of cartoons featuring rabbits that commit suicide in various ways, and has been a topic of debate for months.

A parent complained about the book in October after her 13-year-old son brought it home. She threatened to burn the book, drawing national attention to the story.

I remember when we read books like The Hobbit, Catcher in The Rye, 1984, On The Beach, you know, classics. Now kids are reading about bunnies biting the big one.

Seriously, suicidal bunnies? What the hell are these liberal wackos trying to teach? No, really? I would love a liberal/progressive to explain why the hell something like this is on a grade school syllabus.

    Since this has nothing to do with a school syllabus but rather whether the book should be in the library or not, what does this have to do with being a liberal or a progressive?

    Teach you DO know what that word “syllabus” means don’t you ?
    Also I am not sure that several of the books you mentioned are actually suitable for a middle school syllabus.
