    ...the librarian refused to let me have it because I was "too young" for such a book. I brought my mother to the library, and she checked the book out for me, and told the librarian I could read anything I wanted.
    A pox on those who would pigeonhole young people's brains! Glad your mother stood up for you. I agree that a child should read almost anything he or she wants. (Obviously, there are some areas that are better left unexplored until adulthood.)

    That's funny, that you can't take psychology seriously. Sounds pretty sensible to me. And sci-fi--what a delightful voyage of discovery, so to speak! It entertained and informed me for years.
