Brooklyn Politician Tries to Ban VHS From Libraries

07.14.09 Will Sherman

austinpowersBrooklyn Assemblymember Dov Hikind is “demanding that local libraries ban all VHS tapes,” after a grandmother discovered the Austin Powers movie she borrowed for her grandkids had porno footage taped at the end. Hikind fumed that “the local library can be unsafe for young children,” but didn’t elaborate on how one incident justifies the lost cause of censoring an obsolete video format. |NYP|
