    Obama’s words, as usual, make fine sense to me! As a former elementary reading teacher, I would be happy to volunteer my time and effort to an organization, local or national, that is about the project of making sure that our libraries contain and provide reading material representing the diverse ideas, and critical thinking that enrich the minds of our children and adults alike.

    I welcome any suggestions!

    “….the free, robust exchange of ideas has always been at the heart of American democracy.” It’s always so refreshing to hear (or read) Obama’s intelligent voice. Thanks for this.

    More than just misguided. If I were kind, I’d say stupid, but it’s a concerted effort at mind control, one of the first steps an authoritarian regime takes to silence its critics.

    Thanks, Joe, for including this in your blog. I had not seen it and will pass to my spouse in case she has not seen it, too.
