Libraries (among other thing)
A few days ago, Paul McCartney received an award at the White House. I thought it was quite nice that he got to sing Michelle, My Belle” to Michelle Obama. However, I was a bit saddened when Sir Paul made a snarky comment to the effect that President Obama’s predecessor did not even know what a library was. I would’ve been quite impressed had President Obama had the good grace to point out that while a great many people do not like George W. Bush at all, seeing as how he has been married to a librarian for the last 33 years, I really think he knows what a library is.
