What’s the controversy about Dr. Seuss again?
MiamiHerald / "Walking into the museum, opening to the public Saturday in the author and illustrator's hometown of Springfield, Mass., is like walking into one of his beloved children's books."

That's how the Associated Press described the June 2017 opening of the Dr. Seuss museum. Leagrey Dimond, one of his stepdaughters, said, "And to know that he's going to be here permanently, safe, protected, that people who want to know more are going to make this trip here to see him, it's perfect."

Of course, Dr. Seuss is not safe and protected. He is the latest icon under fire from the politically correct hordes that wake up every day trying to be offended. A librarian at an elementary school in Cambridge, Mass., was a foot soldier in this army when she rejected a gift of Dr. Seuss books from First Lady Melania Trump. She was roundly attacked by many as an ungrateful scold.

However, she opened a line of attack on Seuss that has been continued by higher-ranking members of the mobs threatening many historic figures. Mike Curato, Mo Willems and Lisa Yee, major authors of children's books, declined an invitation to the museum's inaugural children's Literature Festival, because of a mural featuring illustrations from the author's first children's book, "And to think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street."
