Why can't kids get the books they need the MOST?

I just got an email from a blogger and YA novelist named Lee Wind, which illustrates a lot of the challenges we face in the intellectual-freedom fight. In response to the tragic shooting murder of an eighth-grade student at E.O. Green Junior High School in Oxnard, California (see,1,1414535.story for details), Lee decided to donate a collection of GLBTQ-themed young adult novels to the school's library.

Here's Lee's blog entry detailing his attempts to donate the books:

I have nothing to add to Lee's detailed and thoughtful post, other than my support.
