Stephen King Controversy

I know not everyone is aware of the latest happening to (IMHO) the greatest horror/thriller writer of all time – Mr. Stephen King. Heck, even I, a big fan is not that updated with the man. There is a controversy that is being talked about in the internet about Stephen King and it’s not about sexy swimwear

Recent blog and news search shows that Stephen King is currently facing a super small, minute controversy as of this moment.

He’s comment on about the (US) military being illiterate (well, at least that’s what people are interpreting) has grown from a simple part-of-speech early last month to this big issue when a blogger said:

”Nice sentiment when the nation is at war, Stephen.”

Stephen King release a statement last Monday to defend his side of the story, saying:

“That a right-wing-blog would impugn my patriotism because I said children should learn to read, and could get better jobs by doing so, is beneath contempt,”

“I live in a National Guard town, and I support our troops, but I don’t support either the war or educational policies that limit the options of young men and women to any one career — military or otherwise,”

More info on that story here, and here or the Army’s say on the issue. Of course you can see Mr. King’s official statement in his official website.

What ever Mr. King meant, I’m sure it’s just some misunderstanding and Mr. King only wanted to urge the kids to read more. And this also reminded me of The Beatles (or John Lennon’s) statement (“..popular than Jesus Christ”) where people also misinterpret the comment qoutes quoted from Mr. Lennon
