PLEASE protect me from anything that might change my mind

"Did you ever hear anyone say 'That work had better be banned because I might read it and it might be very damaging to me'?"-- Joseph Henry Jackson

I found this at a listing of quotes about banned books called The Forbidden Library. Good stuff.
I was in the bookselling racket when "The Satanic Verses", "American Psycho", and "Final Exit" came out. And guess what....it wasn't conservatives who wanted these titles banned. It was, respectively, The Politically Correct, Feminists, and Lawyers.
