What’s funny about a grown man crying over the closing of his local library – and every other free library in the city of Philadelphia?

Nothing. Except if you are the Huffington Post who chose to mock such a man. Maybe if the “editors” at the AOL super rag had access to a library, they could learn how to spell, and form a sentence.

Huffington Post, you are dead to me.

The story as covered by a decent source in 2008, when it was announced that ALL of Philadelphia’s free libraries were to be closed.

We know our letters just fine, and we know our numbers to a certain point, but books were always the realm of four-eyed poindexters with bowler hats and cravats. That’s why it pleases us so that America’s proud illiterates are finally stepping up and pushing back against the crushing tide of education that threatens to swallow us all into its gaping maw of checked facts. Champions of the Ignorantiat will not like it here.
