Mark Censored Words

I love the Opt Ed section of the paper. I believe we all need to write at least one letter on something we’re passionate about in our lifetime. In saying that, I applaud this reader

I am against censorship of books or any form of media in the public libraries or schools. If someone or some group wishes to censor a word or group of words or an image from a book or other form of media, I feel that the person or group wanting the censorship should be identified.

I propose that the word, words or images that are to be censored be covered by the word “censored,” a black bar or blurring with an associated identifying mark so that the reader or viewer can identify who wanted the entry censored. I want the books or other censored media left available to the public with the censored portions noted.

Censors should not be able to hide nor should they want to if they are truly trying to protect society from some perceived evil.

Michael Koznek, Snohomish
