"Nintendo Power, Sports Illustrated for Kids, and a biography of President Obama were on prominent display as I entered the branch library in Forest Hills, Queens. The librarian looked skeptical when I asked if I could leave copies of IndyKids newspaper on the free literature table. 'Does it have opinions?' she asked me. She consulted with the branch manager, who decided I could not leave IndyKids because it is 'too political.'" (06/11/11)
