I believe that everybody who has noticed the nationwide mania for book-banning that has been rising over the previous few years agrees that it’s positively Orwellian; however that is the place issues begin taking a flip for the Kafkaesque. On April 10, the Hanover County supervisors met to approve language honoring the Lady Scouts that had accomplished their Gold Award initiatives. In the course of the assembly the supervisor for the Chilly Harbor District Michael Herzberg pulled Lindley’s proclamation and submitted a movement for amending it, eradicating language that recognized areas the place the books have been obtainable in addition to any mentions of censorship or banned books.
