Why Use Libraries?--Buy Books Instead
I can't tell if this guy is dead serious (and small-minded) or ready to pull the satire card. Anyway, Michael Bowers, is awfully cranky about all that wasted taxpayer money that goes to his Orland Park, IL library and bookmobile. Apparently, he's on a tear because the bookmobile was in an accident that the city had to shell out big bucks to cover.
I thought government was to put out fires and defend the borders. Not to give us stuff to read. I mean, thanks to the private sector, it's already everywhere you look. If I simply bought one copy of every magazine offered at the corner Mobil station â€” covering everything from Kawasaki motorcycles to Esquire women we love to Forbes financial advice â€” I'd be reading for the next year.
