The Baltimore Sun reports that the bust of Frank Zappa given to the city of Baltimore by the Zappa by a Zappa fan club in Vilnius Lithuania will be placed at the Southeast Anchor Library in Highlandtown. This is the new branch of the Enoch Pratt Free Library opened this year. Frank Zappa, a Baltimore native, was a controversial musician and composer. Comments on the Sun website show that the controversy is not over yet. Zappa was a social libertarian, whose defense of the first amendment was a defense against the conservative nanny state, which wants to order the lives of individuals according to it’s own restrictive set of rules.
