A New Issue for the ALA

I'm heading to ALA and won't be around for a few days, but here's something to ponder. I hope the ALA Council addresses this important issue:

Nation's Gays Demand Right To Library Cards

You know, it is embarassing to have to "prove" you're not gay to one of these comely "special library assistants." Three, four times for one new release fiction volume? I could see why you'd use a secret undergound system of book exchange.

Someone actually thought that this is for real? You have got to be kidding me!!!!

Someone's sexual orientation is the business of no one else. As an athiest, I personally find it offensive that public library tax dollars are spent for bibles and other books on religion. It is ridiculous that someone's sexual orientation is even at issue for a library card.

Lighten up, it's a joke. The Onion magazine is all satire. Are you for real? You pulled my leg.

Next thing you know they'll be demanding the vote. Think of it!

Gays have their own libaries with pink walls and glitter pens, and no late fees ever, silly. I saw it on "South Park."
