Censorship in Texas

I missed these:

St. Andrew's Episcopal School

St. Andrew's Episcopal School in Austin, Texas, turned aside $3 million from a donor who wanted to strip the short story, "Brokeback Mountain" by Annie Proulx, from the private high school's senior reading list. St. Andrew's decided to keep teaching the story about gay cowboys and returned the check. Other benefactors pitched in - resulting in a clear win for those against such censorship. [Thats all thats pertinent from this ( http://www.cleveland.com/entertainment/plaindealer/index.ssf?/base/entertainment/1136021454220101.xml&coll=2 article - more links follow)]
