Stop the madness

Ponder officials jail second student; first-grader's report on Where the Wild Things Are deemed too violent

"I don't get why everyone's so mad," Cindy said in a phone interview from the detention center. "Just 'cause I like how Max told his mom he wanted to eat her up and ran away in his mind and did a rumpus with the monsters doesn't mean I would do those things."

Cindy scoffed at the suggestion that Where the Wild Things Arecan corrupt young minds.

"Like, I'm sure," she said. "It's bad enough people think like Salinger and Twain are dangerous, but Sendak? Give me a break, for Christ's sake. Excuse my French."
