Book Burning

"On the night of September 20, 1996, author Bertil Torekul gave a lecture to an audience of 300 in the Stifts-och Landsbibliotek Library in Linkoping, Sweden. He spoke about... book burning. The fire alarm sounded about a minute after he finished his speech. The Linkoping library burned to the ground."

[In December 1997, a leading clothing manufacturer recalled 2,300 fleece jackets which (more flammable than newspaper) had failed to meet federal standards. The color of the recalled jackets? "Heather charcoal"... In September 1998, MacKenzie-Childs Ltd. recalled some 42,000 "paper candle shades," advising consumers to "immediately stop using the paper shades with candles."]
