Seriously? It's 2009.

Library fight riles up city, leads to book burning demand.

No real comment from me, I think this quote from "Two Cathedrals" will suffice:

DR. BARTLET:
Is this your quote? "If you hide your ignorance, no one will hit you and
you will never learn."

JED:
It's actually Ray Bradbury.

DR. BARTLET:
And you quoted Ray Bradbury?

JED:
Yes.

DR. BARTLET:
In an article you and your friends wrote, condemning professor Loomis.

JED:
For banning certain books from the library, yes.

DR. BARTLET:
He is a professor of literature!

JED:
He banned Henry Miller! He banned D.H. Lawrence.

DR. BARTLET:
Yes.

JED:
"Giovanni's Room" 'cause it's too homosexual!

DR. BARTLET:
Stop it right now. You're a guest at this school.

JED:
I'm a student at this school.

DR. BARTLET:
Jed!

JED:
He banned "Fahrenheit 451," which is about banning books!

**Thanks to The West Wing Transcripts for the quotes!**
