Local activist Lisa Baldwin succeeded in getting a book off Reynolds High School’s Honors English reading list. The Kite Runner had replaced All Quiet on the Western Front, and Baldwin objected to the book’s “adult content.” I feel good about what Baldwin did. I tend not to believe that anything good comes of studying evil. I agree with Greg Gutfeld, one of my heroes, who says there is no understanding evil. Ayn Rand, who wrote some “adult content” of her own, argued evil is the absence of reason. The world is full of beautiful flowers and beautiful music, and life is short.
