Okay, suddenly, I feel much better knowing my true identity (or at least the one conservatives such as those at Human Events Online would describe me): I'm a subversive. Harmful to my fellow citizens, dangerous in my thoughts and let alone my actions. And here I was thinking every time I had additional security issues at the airport it reflected back on my frequent travels and my former career in the airline biz...little did I know that instead it most likely has to do with the books that I've read.
You just know that these classics (no matter what you think of them, I'm a big believer in reading them all...if for no other reason that understanding first hand what all the big hubbub is about) are on Big Brother's Report to the US Gov't list at all public libraries when they are checked out. I find it especially telling that legendary scientist Charles Darwin made two entries on the honourable mention list. Admittedly, I am surprised though that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s speeches against segregation didn't...these conservative buffoons can be elitist, sexist, creationist and capitalist, but somehow they missed their racist day of lectures. Lord, how did we ever get so lucky??
