boingboing has a story from the other day about a college student who attempted to check out Mao's Little Red Book via interlibrary loan and was summarily interviewed by the Department of Homeland Security. further, there is a debate there wether the story is actually true and factual.
now, i'm watching NBC Today and Jame's Carville just cited the story. does that make it true?
i'm wondering if this is just an elaborate internet hoax like toothing.....
