Why am I not surpirsed that this story comes out of San Francisco?
"For the politically correct Bay Area parent, the "Curious George" children's books are a minefield of cultural horrors through which to tiptoe. Imperialism. Animal abuse. Bad parenting.
"The books are really irresponsible to me. It's sickening, really," said Robin Roth, managing editor of www.arkonline.com, an animal welfare Web site.
Roth, a high school English teacher in Los Angeles, writes on her animal rights Web site that "Curious George" reveals "the sinister side of a corrupt wildlife trade with perilous roots in Western imperialism." When the mischievous George is sent to jail, "the picture of the forlorn little primate alone in his cell conjures haunting images of countless monkeys lingering in laboratories, suffering silently and alone."
Oh my head hurts!!!!! Make it stop!!!!!
HEY LADY - here is a hot tip for you. Curious George is a story - fiction - made up - NOT REALITY!!!!!
What is it going to take for us to walk away from the land of the "perpetually offended" and into the land of reality? This is a classic piece of children's literature. What's next? "Make Way for Ducklings"??????
