This week actually is Banned Books Week for those unaware. As celebrated by the American Library Association, the point of this week is to celebrate “Intellectual freedom—the freedom to access information and express ideas, even if the information and ideas might be considered unorthodox or unpopular.”
Our comic’s history certainly makes this personally very important to us. You don’t have to like all media that’s out there, but you should respect its right to exist, even if its ideas run contrary to your own.
COACH T: President Czar asked if me and my football team could help with Banned Books Week. At the rate we're going, we won't even need a full week!
LIBRARIAN: No, Banned Books Week isn't about banning books! It's about raising awareness about censorship!
COACH T: Oh, really?
COACH T: Then you should probably stop those guys from starting a bonfire.
LIBRARIAN: Not the Bradbury and Orwell volumes. They're doubleplus-combustable!
