Something interesting that was being reported in the lastest Federalist journal:

""In other Left Coast news, the San Diego City Council voted to ban use of the word "minority" in city documents and discussions as a "disparaging" term...""

Absurd! Do you know what was the first thing I thought of after reading this?

The book, Fahrenheit 451.

Perhaps I need to send the Kouncil a copy or two.

I don't see what the problem is. Why would anyone take offense to that?

Also, not all of us have read that book that you evoke. Can you give us a brief synopsis of what it's about?

Yeah- I read that too and I thought the same thing... absurd!

Since when was 'minority' a 'disparaging' term?

San Diego's tax dollars well spent....

Fahrenheit 451, by Ray Bradbury is a futuristic novel, taking the reader to a time where books and thinking are outlawed. In a time so dreadful where those who want to better themselves by thinking, and by reading are outlaws as well. Books and ideas are burned, books are burned physically, where as ideas are burned from the mind. Bradbury warns us of what may happen if we stop expressing our ideas, and we let people take away our books, and thoughts.

Looking at the bigger picture, the nation in F 451 is so intent on developing a society where everyone is completety equal in ALL aspects, and that no one has anything better then anyone else, a society where advancement is non-existent and freedom is suppressed comes to being.

Just as an aside, the book's title refers to the temperature at which paper burns. It's also an interesting movie circa the late 60s/early 70s. Try to catch it some time on American Movie Classics or some other time late at night.
