$500 Fine for School Librarian

You just gotta give me a break.  Seen this yet?  High school librarian and father proudly displays his daughter's first graphic novel, a novelization of a Shakespeare play for crying out loud, and is hit with an ethics code violation.  Bureaucracies, I tell you!  He was giving it away, so there was no personal gain!  I mean who wouldn't mention it, especially when it's a Shakespeare comic--that's just the kind of stuff school librarians love to push.  Too bad he couldn't have gotten a lawyer for the case.

Here's the Amazon link.  Maybe she'll sell a few more copies and help her dad pay off the fine.

Hi Ninja,

The sweet irony of this is that the article and controversy will sell more books that his parental endorsement would have!

Interesting world.
