Your Research Paper Is About What???

Hellena had to laugh at the irony within this next story: A senior at UMass was visited by federal agents two months ago, after he requested a copy of Mao Tse-Tung's tome on Communism called "The Little Red Book" to be used while writing a research paper on fascism & totalitarianism.

The story reports that the student was told the book is on a "watch list" of tomes considered dangerous by our ferderal government, and that his background, which included significant time abroad, triggered them to investigate the student further.

Hoo-boy, Hellena feels safer.... and she's not saying where she buried her copy of Mein Kampf..

This particular story has ultimately turned out not to be true. But who the hell knows who's being spied upon and who isn't?

According to fafblog, only God and the President have any control over the President.
