While coming up with the headline for this post, I didn't want to come up as smug or condenscending, and I just want to let you know that I'm more concerned about people being puppets than tools.

And here's a book that they don't want you to read as part of Banned Book Week: Nickled And Dimed: On (Not) Getting By In America. Worth a read, check it out from your local library, or pick up used from Amazon or Half.com.
