(offtopic) Borrowing Mao's Little Red Book gives Homeland Security visit

From Slashdot: News for nerds, stuff that matters

"Your Rights Online: Little Red Book Draws Government Attention

narcolepticjim writes 'An unnamed Dartmouth student was visited by Homeland Security for requesting a copy of Mao Zedong's Little Red Book for a class project.' From the article: 'The student, who was completing a research paper on Communism for Professor Pontbriand's class on fascism and totalitarianism, filled out a form for the request, leaving his name, address, phone number and Social Security number. He was later visited at his parents' home in New Bedford by two agents of the Department of Homeland Security, the professors said.'

This is scary. See Slashdot for over a thousand comments on this (I recommend using their filtering system to only see comments rated +4 or more).

UPDATE: This has been shown to have been a fake.
