The Chicago Public Library is temporarily removing six Dr. Seuss books from circulation after Dr. Seuss Enterprises announced it would cease to publish the books due to racist and insensitive imagery. ”It is important to recognize that what society understands to be relevant and/or common knowledge changes over time, and so too does the Library and the needs of the communities it serves,” Patrick Molloy, a spokesperson with the library, said in a statement. “Library staff encourage patrons of all ages to engage critically with our materials, but materials that become dated or that foster inaccurate, culturally harmful stereotypes are removed


Dr. Seuss Enterprises has bravely conceded that their deceased moneymaker was a racist, and yet some of his books remain available. I say, pull them all from the market, since New America is now the fascist dictatorship they wanted all along. Maybe they could sponsor a series of festive book burning in the public squares to really get the ball rolling.

Book banning. Might as well be burning them; would be the same optic.

Good call. Nobody in Chicago has earned the right to read Dr. Seuss books or to even have them read to them at bedtime.

The current folks who are running this country are exactly like the Nazis in Germany, or the Bolsheviks in Russia. Evil, heartless, and every single thing that they do is a fraud, a lie, corrupt and false.

When I was in library school as a graduate student, we were reminded repeatedly about the importance of access to information. We were to let the consumer of the information to decide what she/he wanted and how he/she used it. That seems like a good idea. In the early 1990s, I could not have conceived of libraries having a ban on certain books.

I remember attending a library book sale about 15 years ago. One of the workers, a very liberal-looking middle-aged woman, made the following statement as young children were going through the books: "Yes, I believe in pandering. I don't care what kids read, as long as they read." I recall how that statement angered me. I'd love to know if that liberal woman still believes the same thing today. Probably not.

They're probably removing them so that da homies don't steal them to sell them on the black market at inflated prices.

Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) told Breitbart News on Wednesday that Democrat representatives, not Republicans, are being provided Secret Service protection per House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) directives. The federal government built concrete barriers alongside fencing with razor wire surrounding the Capitol following violent riots on January 6, ostensibly to protect against a threat of “domestic terrorism” from conservative supporters of former President Donald Trump. Tuberville contrasted Washington, DC’s, reaction to unrest on January 6 with dozens of violent and destructive leftist-driven riots in large American cities in 2020. “In the last year, we had 230 riots,” Tuberville said.

Washington and Beijing are in talks about the first senior level meeting between the two superpowers since Joe Biden came to office. A senior US administration official said the meeting will take place in the 'near term' but will not involve the countries' presidents. Current discussions center around a meeting in Alaska between Secretary of State Antony Blinken and China's top diplomat Yang Jiechi. National security adviser Jake Sullivan and Chinese foreign minister Yang Wi could also take part in the talks. Any such meeting would be the first such contact since President Joe Biden took office in January.

HBO is reportedly “very disappointed” upon learning of a “Lovecraft Country” actress who’s going viral for revealing that the production darkened her skin on set for a role. “This should not have happened, and we are taking steps to ensure this doesn’t occur again in the future,” the network admitted in a statement the Hollywood Reporter obtained regarding the shady incident. In a TikTok video posted last month, actress Kelli Amirah accused the 2021 Golden Globe-nominated horror drama’s makeup crew of casting a dark shadow on her appearance, so she could portray a younger version of a character in a wedding picture.

New York—New York City announced relief for taxi medallion owners and drivers to restructure medallion debt and offer payment support. A $65 million relief fund was created through the federal stimulus to financially support distressed owner-drivers.(Snip) “Many medallion owners are struggling and have asked for assistance from the city,” said Aloysee Heredia Jarmoszuk, commissioner of the Taxi and Limousine Commission. Up to $20,000 loans will be offered up front to restructure medallion debt and an additional $9,000 will be offered in debt payment support.

At that time, crude was averaging about $71 per barrel.”AAA attributes the recent spike in gas prices to

The whistleblower told Berenson that the FAA issued a guidance about a month ago requiring controllers to “wear masks at all times” while at work and in position, and warned that the directive could have devastating consequences for airline passengers and pilots.
