Playing the Controversy Card

I’m going to chime in a bit late here to the heated conversation about Orson Scott Card getting this year’s Margaret A. Edwards Award to say this:

1. From what I’ve read of Orson Scott Card’s publicly-stated views, I find his beliefs and opinions reprehensible.

2. I first read Ender’s Game for a class in library school. I thought it sucked.

Other than that, I’m not sure I have any strong feelings about him getting an award from the ALA.
