Burning Books?

Why were they burning books? It seems that Afghanistan needs all the books it can get it a hold of.

If they can't find someone who wants the books that they no longer want, they can always put them in a box with a sign -- FREE BOOKS

I swear this works. Perhaps someone who can not read, would take one and dream of reading. And someday, learn to read. This is one of the biggest problems in Afghanistan- illiteracy.

I think that it is a sad day when you have to spell out to US citizens, let alone soldiers, that you don't burn books.

Frank Darabont needs to get crackin' on his film adaption of Fahrenheit 451. Our illiterates need to be schooled at the movies
