    The symbolism and sad irony that Lyndie Englund's speech at the Library of Congress has been canceled should be obvious to all of us. This is the LoC, the largest library in the U.S. and a vital center in historical research and something doesn't ring true about the rationale for canceling the speech.

    That the federal government claims it cannot guarantee safety in a government facility is something we all should be concerned about. Nonetheless, the excuse may simply fail to pass the bullshit test and they just threw out an answer that would sound plausible at first.
