Where's the harm?

Eye Weekly produces its own list of harmful books, and actually defines "harm," in response to a recent list compiled by conservative scholars.

One dangerous book that might not occur to many people:
The Pet Goat, Siegfried Engelmann and Elaine Bruner: This heartwarming story of a boy and his goat is so insidiously mesmerizing that it kept George W. Bush transfixed for a full seven minutes after learning that the first plane had hit the twin towers on Sept. 11, 2001.

Oh, Isabella.

This is the best thing I've read today.

(Not faint praise, I've been reading for an hour.)
