Censoring & the Kindle

This blog post made me sigh. It made me think about why I believe it is okay for parents to go through your room — I don’t want anyone legislating what I or my (imaginary) kids should read, watch, or say. However, that doesn’t mean that everything is age appropriate so though I don’t think Mom rifled through my room very often, I fully recognize that she was responsible for my well-being (BTW, thanks for that Mom). But this whole Kindle business makes me also consider all the ways our government and corporate America have promised one thing, and given us something completely different (ex: broken treaties, corruption, ignored privacy agreements). If only we’d all be better about keeping our promises. Don’t worry, Michael, I promise I’m looking at the woman in the mirror first. And thank you sweet Jesus for my Chicago Public Library card.
