WorldNetDaily: 'Marketing of Evil' locked out of college libraries

This, according to the head librarian at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, which has The Marketing of Evil in its collection (and reports that it is currently checked out). What is obviously happening is that college libraries are largely ignoring the title and wishing that it would go into remainders and die on the bargain-books tables in the bookstores. Fat chance, of course, considering the title's bestseller status. But what does it say of a librarian--any librarian--who refuses to add a book to his collection just because it's controversial? Or one who plays favorites with the controversies about which people write a lot of books?
