Goes to Andrea Minnon from North Berwick, Maine. She is trying to get The Catcher in the Rye banned from the freshman curriculum at her son’s high school. My favorite part of the article is this:
After Andrea Minnon went online to research “The Catcher in the Rye,” which had been assigned to her son, she decided that it espouses immoral ideas. Now she is reading the novel.
I don’t really care what she thinks about it, she is entitled to her opinion (although she probably should RTFB first) however the thing that irks me about people like Ms. Minnon is they have this weird idea that their principles should be pressed on everyone. If you want your child to grow up in a vacuum of ignorance go ahead but what is up with forcing your principles on everybody?
