Editorial: Library fosters freedom

A. Nonny Mouse writes The Denver Post Says The Boulder Public Library deserves cheers for drawing a line in the sand when it comes to snitching on patrons by telling the government what they’re reading.

In Colorado, the state Supreme Court has ruled that it’s none of law enforcement’s business what a person reads. The Supreme Court overturned a lower judge’s order that the Tattered Cover Book Store turn over a customer’s records to the North Metro Drug Task Force. The man was accused of making methamphetamine. (Tattered Cover’s founder, Joyce Meskis, struck a blow for freedom by standing on her principles and refusing to cave in.)”
