Quote of the Day, 10/11/06: Censorship

It's October 11, so Happy Birthday RJL! I'm a better person for knowing you.

Today's quotes are about censorship.

Walt Whitman
The dirtiest book of all is the expurgated book.

Tommy Smothers
The only valid censorship of ideas is the right of people not to listen.

Alfred Whitney Griswold
Books won't stay banned. They won't burn. Ideas won't go to jail. In the long run of history, the censor and the inquisitor have always lost. The only weapon against bad ideas is better ideas.
