I didn't see it myself, but last night's Doctor Who episode ("Tooth and Claw" written by Russell T Davies) contained the following gem of dialogue which both my siblings were keen to share with me, and that I just had to share with those who are librarians or (like me) ardent book lovers !
The Doctor: "You want weapons? We're in a library. Books! Best weapons in the world."
[puts glasses on]
The Doctor: "This room is the greatest arsenal we could have."
Grabs a heavy book and tosses it to Rose.
The Doctor: "Arm yourself."
This is so apt - if only people would use books to arm themselves against ignorance and prejudice, instead of reacting with prejudice and ignorance to ban books !
