  •  Should have had a public burning of books (3+ / 0-)

    That is what is done historically.

    There could have been an assigned police officer to read off the names as the books were tossed into the blaze.

    Or maybe they could have been piled up like they used to burn someone at the stake.

    As an aside, when I try and burn papers in an open fire at my camper, the pages have to be separated. I have never tried to burn books, but the experience just noted hints at a not of heat needed. Thus Mayor, next time you might want a propane reinforced fire at the base to ensure effective cremation.
