I\'m sorry to lower the tone after today\'s important stories, but here\'s one I couldn\'t resist - an assistant librarian from Belfast Free Library (Maine) has been charged with assault for punching a patron. The patron had tried to use a floppy disk in a library computer and the two had to be pulled apart. The full story from the Bangor Daily News.
I particularly like the sentence \"Police said that use of floppy disks is not allowed\", as though that explains everything!
