Heh, what is the world coming to? Tchah.
She said it might turn her son off to libraries.
...um, as opposed to turning her son *on* to a life of petty crime? Not to mention what a hideously-worded sentence that is. ;p
Dan Zack, library director, says keeping overdue books is like stealing merchandise from a store.
- a valid point, but it reminds me of that I.T. Crowd skit about online piracy; "would you steal an old lady's purse? etc - well, illegally downloading movies is just as bad....would you shoot a policeman, and then go to the toilet in his helmet, and then deliver the helmet to his grieving widow? and then kill her!?" etc ;)
And the comment about writing in library books gave me a scary flashback to one of my Classics professors in college, who was old enough to give the impression that he knew Dante *personally* ;p...and is *still* there, afaik...anyway, he usually went off on a tirade every few lectures or so about those "dirty little students defacing the works of greater minds with their dirty little pencils..." I think I probably told you that before, but it just popped into my head again now, as I've been having a lot of "flashbacks" lately...damn acid flashbacks. ;p
Also, without getting into the whole thing right now, yay for public LJ posts... ;p and time seems to be flying lately, but I'll try to poke ya properly soon, definitely before the mad Irish peeps visit. ;)

I have a new goal in life.
