A censor cannot be allowed to win (editorial)

1 March 1995

Abstract

The author reflects on how the actions of a self-appointed censor, who tore pages from nine books about sex at the Corvallis-Benton County Public Library, are really a "rejection of democracy." The author condemns the censor and reminds readers the purpose of the library is to provide a balanced selection of materials, some of which might be controversial or offend patrons.
