Wait a second. How is it that Irene Wood and Leonard Zapala happened to
use the exact same expression of support for the videolibbers dissenting
against ALA's endorsement of TV Turnoff Week?

Videolibers:
As ALA staff I am rather constrained in expression of opinion.

As a personal ALA and VRT member, I am heartened by your
fervent
responses and proud of you all.

Does this kind of thing happen so often that ALA has developed a
boilerplate form for staff responses to members' outrage? This is
blatant censorship at odds with the bill-of-rights the organization
claims to be upholding.
