censorship in Turkey

From Ali, Angry Arab's chief correspondent in Turkey:
"The İzmir Education Directorate's books commission is seeking to ban certain parts of John Steinbeck's classic “Of Mice and Men” for several “immoral” passages, according to daily BirGün. 
The book "contains immoral sections" and is "unfit for educational use,” according to the commission's report."
