Legalize it (Books)

My housemate Sarah recently sent me this comic, which details an alternate universe. It's a dangerous world out there, and books are the ultimate gateway drug.

ALEXANDRIA, Va. DEA officials held a press conference to alert law enforcement officials of a dangerous new hallucinogen, "books", which can cause users (slang term "readers") to visualize people and places that do not exist.

- Protesters assemble outside drug den ("library")
- A student holds his "library card", which he claims grants him access to books legally.

I'm so glad that in the real world, books are available over-the-counter without a prescription or legal repercussions. Well, if you don't count copyright law.

  1. There's a Japanese light novel turned anime called "Library War" (Toshokan Sensou) that is about... a library war. It's pretty cool. Let's watch it some time!
