"Maybe we can live without libraries, people like you and me. Maybe. Sure, we're too old to change the world, but what about that kid, sitting down, opening a book, right now, in a branch at the local library and finding drawings of pee-pees and wee-wees on the Cat in the Hat and the Five Chinese Brothers? Doesn't HE deserve better? Look. If you think this is about overdue fines and missing books, you'd better think again."

Heh.  My wife was just freaking out the other night because she couldn't find her copy of Five Chinese Brothers and she wanted to use it for one of her classes.

I wonder if my local library is still missing the copy of Fiend Folio we checked out back in the 80s?

That reminds me: anyone live in Las Vegas? A umm friend of mine wants to know when their annual library amnesty falls, particularly if it falls around the WSOP.

Look at her. This is a lonely woman looking for companionship... a spinster... maybe a virgin. Maybe she got hurt a long time ago. She was a schoolgirl. There was a boy; It didn't work out. Now she needs a little tenderness. She needs a little understanding. She needs a little Kramer.
