Libraries a waste of money

Ooooh, here's a great way to get a bunch of people all riled up. Complain that with the Internet, local governments are wasting their money by continuing to support libraries. I feel sorry for people whose "inquisitiveness and reading enjoyment are satisfied online." You obviously can't enjoy reading that much, or be to inquisitive if the questionable content you get online satisfies everything you need, and you must not read fiction.

No one who reads this blog needs my opinion on why libraries are important. I will grant that they're changing and we all need to work hard to keep them relevant in the eyes of at least the enlightened part of our population... and those who can't afford computers and Internet access at home.

I wonder if they printed that because they knew it was painfully ignorant and myopic, or because they agreed.
