Random quote of the day:

“Don’t join the book burners. Don’t think you are going to conceal faults by concealing evidence that they ever existed. Don’t be afraid to go in your library and read every book, as long as that document does not offend our own ideas of decency. That should be the only censorship.”

—Dwight D. Eisenhower, Dartmouth College Commencement, June 14, 1953
