When I got to the office today there was a package sitting on my desk. I received my sixth copy of Gregg Easterbrook‘s “The Progress Paradox: How Life Gets Better While People Feel Worse” — I keep giving them away! — via Amazon’s used book marketplace. The book is in near-perfect condition, perhaps because it seems to have been stolen from the Naperville, Illinois Public Library. Either someone stole the book from the library and then sold it on Amazon, a Naperville Public Library employee is stealing books and selling them on Amazon, or the administrators of the Naperville Public Library are knowingly reselling their library books on Amazon. I don’t think that stealing library books is a crime that any police department seriously enforces, so people could presumably make quite a bit of money stealing library books and posting them for sale on Amazon. How odd.

A loaded God complex, cock it and pull it.
@DisneylandAP Information like that (plus hours of operation) more valuable if posted prior evening instead of morning!
@KathrynSBowers I can’t stand when people cutting through here honk at Overland residents!
