Gay Books Burned In Chicago

90 books in the gay and lesbian sex spontaneously burst into flame Tuesday at the Boystown branch of the Chicago Public Library. Ten books in the African American History section were also damaged in the fire, which was an expected casualty as the gays and blacks are usually ghettoized together in most public institutions.

Chicago police are investigating the cause of the fire, which was most likely some gay erotic fiction that was just a little too hot to handle.

For a more serious take on this turn of events, take a look at PAYOR’s timeline of censorship aimed at minority groups.

      I know this is what IMDB said about the Sandler movie’s plot, but it doesn’t make sense… if they’re BOTH firefighters, then they’d already have the same insurance, retirement, and other benefits, right? This would only make sense if only one of them were a firefighter. Not that I expect a Sandler pic to be particularly intelligent or logical, but if that’s really the plot it’s even lamer than usual.
