GOING TO THE LIBRARY
The British library movement was founded by bearded proto socialist tweed-backs for the great unwashed. Little were they to know that the great grandchildren of those first people who wandered into their municipal shrines to humanity would shoot down their vision in a hysteria of materialism. It seems that ownership is everything today. but there is nothing like picking a stranger's dried skin out of a large print copy of Ian Fleming‘s Goldf/nger. We need to learn how to lend again. Why not share the knowledge? Why not get dressed up and go to y0ur library, flirt with the assistants. turn your back on greed and remember the beautiful things you used to do before you spending your days on Ebay. naked and high on Valium? (Paul Dale)
