The book bans should be a dead subject by now. They can have the "controversial books" in the library in a special area or behind the desk and kids can get permission from their parents to be able to access the books if needed. That's it! It's over! It's not a huge deal. Conservatives should focus on more important issues like wealth and income inequality, election conspiracy theories, and sabotage and obstruction of government by the GOP.
