  • Heard that! If the library staff treats people in the library as rudely as they do OUTSIDE of the library it is no wonder that the letters and complaints have started rolling in!

  • I am with unoit and madmom61. I have personally experienced nothing but continuous rudeness from the library staff.

    My question however is to David Lewis. Aren't you the owner of Computer Central and you live on the SE corner of N. Forest Ave (SR 59) and Vermont. What country are you from? What nationality are you?

    You came to my house uninvited one day a few years back and unsolicited one of your personal cards to me expressing your religion and harping a quote on it. My wish for you is to go back to whereever you came from. You have a bad habit of lecturing your opinion's here when you are not even a true-blooded all American.

    What makes you so special to think people even want to hear from you and/or want your unsolicited opinions, religion and so on?

    Please go back to whatever rock you crawled under from and preach to your own nationality. Maybe they will care to listen to you.

  • Excuse me, catlady, but I must respond to your ignorant rant, as I know Mr. Lewis will not, for he is a much better man/person than I will ever be. First of all, I can assure you that he is 100% born and raised, and American as you can get. Although I am not quite sure why that matters, unless you are an uneducated backward hick, but I digress. And if you took the time out of your day to not only read this blog but to respond to it, then either you have a pitiful excuse for an existence or YOU DO care to listen to a man that has more knowledge and more to say than your tiny existence will ever allow.

  • To the Catlady

    How rude you were here! Your comments were off-topic and an uncalled for personal attack on a very good man.

    What are you implying by questioning Mr. Lewis' nationality? The man was born in the US and has lived in the US his whole life. I'm not sure whether your comment is intended to be racist or anti-semitic, but it is a miserable failure in either case.

    Mr. Lewis is an insightful and learned man whose view of the world is both enriching and thought-provoking. Your comments, as I see them are nothing but ad-hominem vitriol.

    The world is richer for his writing and poorer for yours.

  • I am actually curious what a true blooded American is? My roots come from Scotland and also a bit Native American. Am I a true American then? I thought we were a melting pot in this country!

  • When parusing around websites like MySpace, YouTube, or even eBay, you can often find off-color remarks about someone's thoughts. I wouldn't suspect such a thing from a relatively small town newspaper. Normally I just gloss over the shiny language, continuing on to what I think is important and completely disregard the blind ignorance of those people of obvious lesser intelligence. So I guess I can do that even when someone is attacking my father too. To catlady, who I can only assume lives up to the name, rest assured that my dad has already brushed you off.
