First they want to have the librarians controll all access to the net. So finally we make some decisions and then get burned for it. According to this article from Click2Houston.com the mayor of Huston has ordered that a link to Go Ask Alice on the library’s site be removed. Now he’s going to “have a task force investigate all of the links on the library’s Web site.” I wonder if any librarians will be on this taskforce.
