Ok, we all know that I *HATE* Fahrenheit 451, right? This should come as no surprise to anyone.

That being said ...

Two weeks ago at Caney Creek High School, a tenth grade English class was given "Fahrenheit 451" as a reading assignment. But Diana Verm stopped after a few pages. She said she was offended by "the cussing in it and the burning of the Bible."

*headdesk* Can we just burn her, please? As b_phil said, "Yeah, that "whooosh" sound she just heard above her was the WHOLE POINT OF THE FUCKING BOOK."

EDIT: All the discussion's over at LJ for this one, folks!
