Controversy at Green Bank

PCFL director Allen Johnson and the Green Bank Radio Telescope Education
Center planned on starting a film series in January. Their first film
was “Bowling for Columbine.” Various staff members of Radio Telescope
protested the film, and it was shown at the nearby Green Bank PL instead
of the Education Center Johnson and board member Jane Price Sharp were
guests of the White House a few weeks latter to receive their National
Library Service Award. ( To see a picture and story visit -
http://www.imls.gov/whatsnew/current/102103a.htm) Allen has been
promoting “tolerance” thru his new Pearl S. Buck E Pluribus Unum
Collection, and showed some WV-produced films on MLK Day. It is ironic
that staff members at WV’s highest tech science center protested this
film – after it won Oscars, was shown all over the world including
Charleston. Kudos to Allen and his board for handling the controversy so
. He and Gordon Simmons will be doing a workshop on alt library sources
at the annual library conference in March. (See piece on “Stone Reader”
