The Courier: “A Caney Creek High School dad is fired up because the Conroe Independent School District uses the book ‘Fahrenheit 451′ as classroom reading material. Alton Verm, of Conroe, objects to the language and content in the book. His 15-year-old daughter Diana, a CCHS sophomore, came to him Sept. 21 with her reservations about reading the book because of its language….’It’s just all kinds of filth,’ said Alton Verm, adding that he had not read ‘Fahrenheit 451.’” (Emphasis added.)
