Abstract

This letter to the editor is in reaction to a previous letter from a reader imploring someone to clean up the filth being put on the shelves in libraries. The current author rebukes this thought, asking who would have to the authority to decide what filth is, and explaining that he wants a library that is completely uncensored. He stated that he wants his son to have access to all filth so he can learn for himself to seek out the truth.
