I agree with the editorial that states that banning the "Fifty Shades of Grey" trilogy would be laughable if it weren't so serious ("Banned in Bel Air," June 2). Actually, while reading about the decision, I did get a laugh. It reminded me of a potential Saturday Night Live skit.
I can just picture the librarian clutching her breast — excuse me, I don't want to arouse prurient thoughts — clutching her hand to her bosom, and declaring, "Oh, my what a disgusting book, I must hurry and finish it so I can read the second one."
I don't know if the book is obscene, but banning it is.
