OUTKAST, LOU REED, AND NOTORIOUS B.I.G. are among the musicians whose works are not welcome in Kansas libraries.The very political Rage Against the Machine is also verboten. The state attorney general -- not anybody within the library system -- made the judgment.
Librarians -- who usually know better -- aren't objecting. Funny they don't see the difference between librarians choosing what to stock in their institutions and law enforcement officials telling them what they're not going to stock.
(From Rick ... once again keeping an eye on Kansas from somewhere near the Danube.)
