Reject!
 

Looking over these comments and this proposed amendment, I can't help but be disturbed.  Who is to determine what is considered sensitive?  It is a subjective word.  This is the type of legislature that would make me pause as a teacher and parent.  The minute we begin down this road, we are not going to like where it takes us.....perhaps all opposed should read Fahrenheit 451....or revisit the book-burnings that took place during WWII...
