When Frog and Toad are more than friends.
Battle joined once again in Lexington, where an outraged parent--honestly, those words are becoming as yoked as disgruntled employee--is complaining about the reading of King and King in her seven-year-old son's classroom. I guess I misread the zeitgeist when I reviewed the book, saying "the whole thing is so good-natured that only the most determined ideologue will be able to take offense." Lexington school superintendent Paul Ash is my hero, saying "Lexington is committed to teaching children about the world they live in, and in Massachusetts same-sex marriage is legal."
