Bartlesville in the Bermudez Triangle

It's interesting to see the massive anti-banning blog campaign surrounding the Bermudez Triangle and Bartlesville Mid-High. This isn't the first book in Oklahoma to be challenged recently -- but it is the first one, that I've seen, that has prompted so many bloggers to weigh in so aggressively. Yeah sure the book that shall not be named got some press and so did the 6 happy feet-- but did they get a youtube post by an author.

Whenever there are other books being challenged--in Oklahoma or elsewhere--librarians can always let the authors of those books and/or the American Library Association's Office for Intellectual Freedom know about the challenges.

When these things happen and word never gets out beyond the school level, there's fewer opportunities (and resources) to fight the banning of books.
