want to. I've seen your type before -- flashy, making the
scene, flaunting convention. Yeah, I know what you're
thinking... Why's this guy making such a big stink about
old library books? Let me give you a hint, junior. Maybe
we can live without libraries, people like you and me....
Maybe. Sure, we're too old to change the world. What about
that kid, sitting down, opening a book right now in a branch
of the local library and finding pictures of pee-pees and
wee-wees in The Cat in the Hat and The Five Chinese Brothers.
Doesn't he deserve better? Look, if you think this is about
overdue fines and missing books, you'd better think again.
This is about that kid's right to read a book without getting
his mind warped. Or maybe that turns you on, Seinfeld...
Maybe that's how you get your kicks... You and your goodtime
buddies... I've got a flash for you, joy boy. Partytime is
- Lt. Bookman
