9:30 AM -- The Daytona Beach News-Journal Online ("The Independent Voice of Volusia and Flagler Counties") reports on a Concerned Mom seeking to preserve the touching innocence of high school students:

  • A mother concerned about what she considers pornography in her daughter's reading assignment at DeLand High School wants the book in question banned from Volusia County schools. Vikki Reed of DeBary plans to submit a written complaint today focusing on two passages she finds objectionable in "Cracking India," a 1992 novel by Pakistani-born Bapsi Sidhwa...

    Reed's complaint focuses on two passages spanning four pages of the 289-page book. One describes an oral sexual encounter between the main character and her male cousin...

    While DeLand senior Kelley Morris said the targeted passages might make some readers uncomfortable, "they're going to encounter things like this in real life."

Ewww! Say it ain't so!
