I believe we are on an irreversible trend toward more freedom and democracy — but that could change.

Three Little Pigs 'too offensive'

The classic children's story the Three Little Pigs is to offensive for the British community. The reason cited is that "its raises cultural issues."This obviously calls for the revision of the entire US curriculum. Wait, aren't dogs offensive to Muslims too? Bye-bye Lassie! Forget it, Scooby Doo. You are SOL, White Fang. BTW, Jews have lived in England for a thousand years. Jews do not eat pork or keep pigs for fun or profit. Yet I do not recall a British Jew imposing their beliefs on the natives.

Silicone Valley, United States
I am a cantankerous man living and working in the Silicon Valley where reading books is an abomination that is virtually unheard of, frowned upon and may be detrimental to one's career. I avoid censure by never conceding that I ever read or owned a book in my life. If anyone accidentally glimpses my scant proficiency in any subject matter, I immediately accredit it to having glanced at DrudgeReport that day.
