Remember Alexandria, anyone?

I just read online that two public libraries in Mississippi have banned Jon Stewart's book America: The Book. They objected to the picture of naked Supreme Court Justices.

Leave it to Mississippi to make the backwoods stereotypes come true. It's a photoshopped, satirical picture, folks!! Come ON!!

What's next? Should we pull all of the art books off the shelves because they show, gasp, a dick on a statue?! What about those health books? They show up close and personal pictures of venereal disease... "Golly, Maggie, we better burn them nasty books so our sensitive readers don't get offended."
