A pair of high school girls came into the library where I work and asked me for movies about the Ku Klux Klan.  I gave them a list.  When they emerged from the stacks, I added another suggestion.  I admitted it might not be quite the right thing for a school presentation, but I handed them Ramones Mania and pointed out "The KKK Took My Baby Away."  I told them is was a fun song even if it isn't appropriate for their project.  Heck, if their teacher is a Ramones fan, the students could end up with extra credit points for their diligence.  And if not, at least I found a way to expose two more people to the Ramones.
