Moments of clarity, attempts to focus, and questions to ponder in an intentional life
What a totally delightful article! Cradle of democracy, indeed. Of course, since it is a government provided service these days, we must question whether it is truly democratic (sarcasm intended). The only thing I disagree with Mr. Gully on is his view that the advent of library videos and DVDs is a bad thing. Though film can certainly can detract from a book, it is its own genre, too, and a wonderful one at that. I like that one shouldn't have to pay Blockbuster's fee to see a great classic and receive some valuable cultural education.I can't imagine why I thought you were from Canada . . . . I remember your post/poll about library late fees a while back and I remember thinking that only a Canadian could disparage late fees (or a citizen with a more socialist mentality than the typical American), but I'm pretty sure it was something else as well. But of course, I knew you had a daughter in the army, and so really, I don't know what I was thinking!
