The Alabama legislature is considering a bill that would ban books with homosexual content. When asked what would happen to books that were banned if the law was passed, Gerald Allen, the state rep behind the bill, said, “I guess we dig a big hole and dump them in and bury them.” Soon after he introduced the bill, Allen received an invitation to meet with President Bush.

One of the books that would be banned under the law, incidentally, would be Sisters, a novel by Vice President Cheney’s wife Lynne. Thanks to for linking to the latest update.
