Word Spotlight: Sick-out, Hypothermia, Aurora Borealis

Question of the Week: Publisher Scholastic says it will no longer distribute the picture book, A Birthday Cake for George Washington.

Do you think Scholastic, the publishing company did the right thing by pulling the book from shelves? Or do you think Freedom of Speech should be considered and controversy shouldn't be a reason to halt publication? Supporters of this side of the debate say by pulling the book, it eliminates a reader's ability to evaluate and discuss the topic.
