"What is the nature of these bans? It isn't federal right? It's more like individual school boards deciding which material is prudent and what is not? Are there any school districts where books on evolution are banned?"

I am a chef, particularly in love with pastries and those delicious palmiers. I believe my blood is made of a cuppa or two and I was a ballerina for ten years and I want to go back to it so much. Sadly, due to ballet, I've ruined my body's joints so that my doctor tells me I can't dance any more.
So I resort to rock climbing and bouldering!
