If he kept his opinions to himself, I'm a *shrug*. Instead, he's using his voice in a powerful media outlet to campaign against libraries. My money, my choice. And our libraries have many, many copies of his books - no trouble at all getting hold of them.

How lovely for you to be that wealthy. I can't afford a $10-$20 dollar a day reading habit.
