Live! Nude! Justices!

Political Wire:

"Library officials in two southern Mississippi counties have banned Jon Stewart's best-selling America (The Book)," the AP reports. The officials objected to a spread that featured the "faces of the nine Supreme Court justices superimposed over naked bodies."

Believe me, having been a pubescent boy and having seen the nude Supreme Court Justices spread in Jon Stewart's book, I can say without equivocation that that page could only turn kids off from sex. They would never seek it out. But, now that these librarians are banning it, you can be sure they will at least want to find out what the fuss is about.

I'm sure Jon Stewart would appreciate more such bannings.

(To tell you the truth, I'm kind of surprised it took this long for this to become a controversy.)
