Sade - Nothing can come between us

Sade - a truly chic performer. These videos are from 1996. Only thirteen years ago and fast forward about how the most recent MTV Awards and that it was all truly riff-raff. Truly mediocre artists dressed like clowns, putting each other down. The lowest common denomiator. True Style will never die.

by philosopher Bertrand Russell

Banned Books Week

Banned Books Week celebrates the freedom to choose and the freedom to express one’s opinion even if that opinion might be considered unorthodox or unpopular and stresses the importance of ensuring the availability of those viewpoints to all who wish to read them. After all, intellectual freedom can exist only where these two essential conditions are met. Observed since 1982, Banned Books Week reminds Americans not to take this precious democratic freedom for granted.

5 Book that have been banned somewhere in America over the past 124 years.

- The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Marc Twain.

- The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck

- The Color Purple by Alice Walker
