Missing the Point

Eudora Welty Library in Mississippi has banned an ACLU poster advertising Banned Book Week (from the Jackson, MI Clarion-Ledger).

[Executive Director of the Mississippi ACLU Gail Chadwick] said a library official rejected the poster’s images of a Playboy magazine cover and a comical drawing of Chicago’s late Mayor Harold Washington clad in women’s underwear.
