Disappoint Mints - transparent censorship

Knoxville News Sentinel
Mints removed from University of Tennessee campus store. This story is great on several levels. The satire is excellent. Censorship is not only blatant but obvious.

The Tennessee state representative had no compunction in exercising state political power to cause the censorship. Not surprising - the representative is an all too sensitive Democrat.

Also compare this story with the Daily Show's satirical praise of British parliament.
