Little red book story a hoax

Turns out that the kid who said that Homeland Security visited him over the "little red book" of mao made it up. There was something amiss about the story from the beginning, although I couldn't put my finger on it. I didn't post anything about it; instinct, I guess.

Anyways, the little red book is something that a kid would think that the feds would be concerned about rather than something that they really would be concerned about.

Hell, I requested a copy of a book by Eric Honecker, the longtime dictator of East Germany, (ironically about peace and security), via interlibrary loan and no one came to talk to me about it.
