Censorship as Safety

Bit late for Banned Books Week, I’m afraid, but I loved this. Banning books is just one example of denying people freedom of speech, though a very, very important one.

I posted this a while back. Seems appropriate to repost it now … I never have liked either hypocrisy or witch-hunts.

This beautiful picture makes me homesick for somewhere that was never really my home and for a life I lived in my dreams all though my childhood in England, then later, though only for a few brief years, in reality.

No time for reviews at the moment, but I couldn’t resist this question when I happened upon it.

And the answer is … Now, this evening, Jayne Lyons, in The Medievalist. She time-travels back to the 15th century and meets and falls in love with Richard III. I have just finished re-reading Josephine Tey’s The Daughter of Time, the best investigation into the murder of the Princes in the Tower ever written and will review it here asap. Suffice it to say that I would give anything (almost) to be in Jayne Lyons’ place right now!
