So you think I'm a loser? Just because I have a stinking job that I hate, a family that doesn't respect me, a whole city that curses the day I was born? Well, that may mean loser to you, but let me tell you something. Every morning when I wake up, I know it's not going to get any better until I go back to sleep again. So I get up, have my watered-down Tang and still-frozen Pop Tart, get in my car with no upholstery, no gas, and six more payments to fight traffic just for the privilege of putting cheap shoes on the cloven hooves of people like you. I'll never play football like I thought I would. I'll never know the touch of a beautiful woman. And I'll never again know the joy of driving without a bag on my head. But I'm not a loser. 'Cause, despite it all, me and every other guy who'll never be what he wanted to be are still out there being what we don't want to be forty hours a week for life. And the fact that I haven't put a gun in my mouth, you pudding of a woman, makes me a winner.

The libraries I've been acquainted with don't really care about the fines, because when all's said and done, they'd rather have the books back than the money. A lot of those books can't be replaced anymore.

That's a lot of copies of "Hop on Pop," and dammit, they'll be returned when they're finished with them. Reading doesn't come easily to Arizonians.

So around $100 an item? Did they have the police calculate the overdue fees?
