That's just a little bit too pretentious, Fayetteville Public Library

Posted By on Thu, Feb 7, 2008 at 10:43 AM

So this is the scenario:

Someone stands outside the Fayetteville Library, and asks people on the sidewalk if they would be willing to sign a petition to get an issue on the ballot for November. Someone from the library tells him that he needs to move, since the good folks at the FPL claim not only the library building as their property, but also, it seems, the public space outside.

They weren’t rude to him, but he still had to leave.

Since when have people trying to obtain names for a petition been not allowed to stand in front of the public library?

I suppose I could write something about freedom of speech, and about organizations becoming terminally pretentious, but I think the Fayetteville library already said it for me.


Hmm, I wonder where I can more information? Newspapers and TV only seem to give a fraction of the story - when they report it at all.

A lot a folk don't have a lot of free time to search the Internet for news about politics and world affairs, and one site I'd like to urge you to check out is which is updated daily. It is full of articles about American politics, and the international situation, plus you can sign up to have it sent to you to via email every day. Who can beat that?
