shameful, ugly, can I even say stupid?

an "anti-library" faction?

"Don't cry crocodile tears about people who are making $100,000 a year wiping tables and putting the books back on the shelves," Xinos smirked, apparently referencing the fired head librarian, who has advanced degrees and made $98,676 a year. He said Oak Brook had to "stop indulging people in their hobbies" and "their little, personal, private wants."
can't help but wonder what kind of library experience marked this person in their youth??? !!!

Xinos, who unsuccessfully sued to stop the building of the new library, which opened in 2002, sits on one side of the issue. He lost his election bid to be a village board member, but has been president of his home association since 1983 and worked to elect board members who agree with him about the library.

thanks (I think;) to michael stephens for thelink

All I can say is "Wow!" and how lucky we are with the groups we have supporting us.
