I can't believe this guy holds a public office

A quote by Mecklenburg County Commisioner Bill James in an article in the Charlotte Observer about new library director, Charles Brown: 'From Republican Bill James, he heard an argument for applying community standards to the library's collections, including a ratings system on books like that on movies. "We had a great meeting," James said. "The main point I was trying to get across to Mr. Brown was, `Welcome to Oz. You're not in Minnesota anymore.' "'

I hope he is just grandstanding and doesn't actually think that would be implemented. I am sure he doesn't have a realistic plan with which to start such an impossible project. And that quote! How rude can you be?
