Out of the entire flush of unabashed idiocy saturating the Nampa School Board’s decision to ban those 22 books from the district’s libraries, to this observer (standing on the sidelines not sure whether to laugh or chew my tongue off), the most idiotic aspect was them declaring their decision to be in effect “forever.” For! Ever!
Imagine that. Such unexceptional people believing they have accomplished something that will last, presumably, until the end of time. Believing they are so potent that their little tin-pot edict will withstand the test and temptation of any and all future enlightenment. Believing that nothing lies ahead for Nampa’s public schools but one bloc of dullard trustees after another, all agreeing to keep whatever wisdom is within those books from crossing paths with the young minds of Nampa, in perpetuum.
