This weekend's edition of "Weekend America" has a piece on The Power 
of Lucky, focusing on children's reaction to the word scrotum (sorry 
if your school filters this message out because of the 's' word.  I 
refuse to censor myself here, it's a perfectly legitimate word, not 
slang, not obscene, not intended to excite prurient 
interest.)  Sadly, the program, like so many other examples of media 
coverage, stated that "librarians were refusing to put the books in 
their collections", giving the impression that this is what most, or 
all, librarians were doing.

Weekend America airs on PBS stations nationwide, but at differing 
times, often on Saturday afternoons but not always.   Its available 
on the NPR web site at
