You don’t have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get people to stop reading them.

    So true.

    The sad thing is that due to the continuing economic turmoil, that’s kind of what’s happening. In my state, they’re closing libraries left and right. Same in California.

    But TV is free.
    FoxNews is all about closing the libraries, though: http://www.myfoxchicago.com/dpp/news/special_report/library-taxes-closed-20100628

    Eleanor Crumblehulme has a great quote along similar lines: “Cuts to libraries during a recession are like cuts to hospitals during a plague.”
