Why, Indeed

A San Antonio area school district decided recently to remove the novel "A Handmaid's Tale" from the curriculum after a parent complained it was sexually explicit and offensive to christians.

The district reversed the decision yesterday.

It sounds to me like a case of the school district overreacting to the woman's overreacting, and the media making a mountain of what needn't be more than an anthill.

sexually explicit and offensive to christians? I must read it! Isn't that what the students who suddenly had it banned would think?

It sounds like just another day in our "politically correct" society.
