Book Flushing, Fact Or Fiction?

In light of the Newsweek Koran-in-the-crapper caper, the guys at Silent Running set out determine whether a book could actually be flushed. Since using the Koran (or even the Bible) would be offensive to many, a substitute publication that no one would be upset to see desecrated was found...
