Did this story ever make the blogs? Perhaps a CO

Story went that some college kid got visited by Homeland Security for attempting to take out Chairman Mao's Little Red Book on an inter-library loan.

It was not true.
Kirk Whitworth, a spokesman for the DHS—the U.S. cabinet department that oversees the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, the Secret Service, and Citizenship and Immigration Services, among others—said in the December 21 Standard-Times that the story seemed unlikely. “We’re aware of the claims,” he said. “However, the scenario sounds unlikely because investigations are based on violation of law, not on the books and individual[s who] might check [them] out from the library.”
