Just out of curiousity, is this Moby Dick discussion really about a case 
of censorship, or just parents not wanting elementary, middle, or high 
school aged children reading certain novels?  I don't accept that the 
latter qualifies as censorship, since these novels are readily available 
in bookstores and libraries, and would rather respect the right of 
parents to raise their own children as they see fit.

When I think of censorship, I'm thinking more along Milton's lines: 
burning books, making them completely unavailable to all audiences.
