STARK RAVING DUTCH

From THE IRISH TIMES:

A group of secondary schools in the ultra-conservative Dutch Bible Belt has destroyed 3,000 back-to-school diaries specially printed for teenage pupils, because parents complained that the internationally recognised peace logo on the cover may have “Satanic” origins. The cover features six students wearing T-shirts, one with the circular logo designed in 1958 by artist Gerald Holtom for the philosopher Bertrand Russell and his Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament.

The diaries will cost at least €15,000 to replace.

It's all that flat land stretching for miles and miles to the horizon. It's enough to drive anyone mad.
