I've just re-read Bill Bryson's The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid. It's very funny.

It's also a reminder of why we should read history. It is the story of his boyhood interspersed with random news stories.

One was about a book written by a psychiatrist warning that comics were the cause of delinquency and were turning young boys into sex maniacs and instead of being seen for the moral panic it was and laughed at, it was a popular book and taken very seriously.
