The local Fox News affiliate did a groundbreaking report which brings up the question:

Libraries: Fuck 'em?

Did you know that they cost money that could be used for other things? Did you know there's the Internet? And paperbacks?

Did you know that if you were at the Harold Washington Library the other day that someone at Fox News may have been filming you with a hidden camera to figure out if people are USING THE LIBRARY?

Did you know we're doomed?
