Reading by the Shore, Charles Sprague Pearce, circa 1863-865
Daily Thoughts 01/29/2012
I spent some more time this morning reading Debt the First 5000 Years. David Graeber right now is describing how bullion or coinage is more portable and a more reliable way to deal with soldiers and armed mercenaries who cannot be trusted with credit.
I spent some more time updating the Twitter and Facebook account for the library.
I also read some of the latest news on Occupy Wall Street it saddens me. Oakland California has a history of radicalism and problems with the police. It was not just a flashpoint, it was a bonfire waiting to happen. I am glad to remain an observer, because even more I realize that this movement is more about protest than solving peoples problems.
The Bookstores Last Stand
This may affect libraries in a big way.
