Subject: Palin

Here is a list of books that Sarah Palin tried to have banned from the
Wasilla Public Library, according to the official minutes of the Library
Board. When she was unsuccessful at having these books banned, she tried to
have the librarian fired.

  As many of you will notice, it is a hit parade for book burners.
