Atwood too Racy for School

A San Antonio-area school superintendent has pulled Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale from the Advanced Placement English curriculum because he found it too racy.

Lyman says he found some of the descriptions in the book too sexually explicit for high school students. That -- he says -- doesn't support state efforts to encourage sexual abstinence outside marriage.

Texan hicks.

You know, it would be funny, if it wasn't so pathetic.

Full story.
