After the Heartland Institute distributed, apparently for free, 200,000 copies of a book called Why Climate Scientists Disagree About Global Warming, three senior House Democrats--Bobby Scott (VA), Raul Grijalva (AZ), and Eddie Johnson (TX) have filed a request that the book be destroyed, thereby indicating that their knowledge of the literary canon does not extend to Ray Bradbury.
One might also infer that Congressmen Scott, Grijalva, and Johnson have only a fleeting relationship with the practice of logic and the principles of investigation, which would have informed them that when you have a work with which you disagree, the last thing you ought to do is to demand it be destroyed. It is a "tell" that you are not just unwilling, but also incapable, of addressing its arguments.
(thanks for the confession, Congressmen)
