Yet another reason I am against censorship and people trying to “protect” others for their own good.

A grocery store in Arkansas placed a protective shield over the cover of US Weekly Magazine featuring Elton John, his partner, and their son.

The covers are provided at the stores for use at the discretion of the management.

“Sometimes those photos might be sexually provocative or too revealing. The magazine article titles might also be too suggestive for some customers.”

I’m not sure I even have the words this early in the morning to comment on this event.  Take from it what you will.
