Kit, I have read each Forum response to this act of censorship, and  
have waited for a definitive answer such as you've provided.  From the  
beginning I've been enraged over what Mr. Gribben has done and have  
believed it to be a blatant surrendering of scholarship.  It was the  
same rage I felt years ago when I saw the director of art I worked  
for, after a complaint from a parent,  using markers to place halters  
on all the Gauguin Tahitian women in an art book.  You have so well  
articulated for me what I felt.  I am sending your response to my son  
who is the Vice Provost and also director of the writing center he  
formed at St. John's in Queens.  He collects gems like yours.
