What Is Wrong With Kansas?

(Cartoon by Alfredo Martirena and snagged from cartoonstock.)


Adults spend a lot of time expressing dismay that kids devote entirely too much time tweeting, texting, and playing games on the internet.  So what happens when a kid embarks on a project which benefits his entire community by encouraging his neighbors of all ages to read books?  The community shuts him down.

From the L.A. Times:

The idea of sharing his love of books with his neighbors was thrilling to 9-year-old Spencer Collins. So, with the help of his parents, he set up a Little Free Library in their yard in Leawood, Kansas.
City authorities told the family to take it down.
