Engrave this Quote Censor, n. An officer of certain governments, employed to supress the works of genius. Among the Romans the censor was an inspector of public morals, but the public morals of modern nations will not bear inspection.
-Ambrose Bierce, The Enlarged Devil's Dictionary, 1967 Tell a Friend
