Brickbat: Dirty Cowboy


The Annville-Cleona, Pennsylvania, school board removed the award-winning children's book The Dirty Cowboy from elementary school libraries after one parent complained. The book tells the story of a cowboy who takes a bath in a river then finds his dog, which no longer recognizes him, won't let him have his clothes back. The parent complained that the cowboy is depicted as being nude, though various objects always cover his genitals.
