Library of Congress Subject Headings Weekly List 09 (February 27, 2008). Here is my semi-regular commentary on Library of Congress Subject Headings. This week: the usual bit on SHes more important than the waves of feminism, and also headings that made me giggle or made me mad, including The addition of the word Christian in a couple of headings, which is a good thing.

However, "The Welcoming Committee has no plans to purchase machine guns, rubber bullets, pepper spray, tear gas, concussion grenades, batons, water cannons or helicopters, all of which will be at the disposal of local police and federal agents in September."
