Sigh. Let's not stereotype. Political books from both sides of the divide are doing quite well. Michael Jordan famously said that "Republicans buy shoes, too", well, Republicans buy books as well. Just ask Bill O'Reilly. While I have personally never read one of his books, he's frequently on the best seller list.

I was thinking more along the lines of books for toddlers where literacy skills are not needed.

The last time I was in a B&N, that seemed to be a target audience. Lot's of games and stuff, but I must say it's been a couple of years.

My library is now a full-time day-care, kindergarten and cafeteria where silence is not golden.

Times have changed, and the services have to keep up. You can't kick the kids out into the street anymore and leave them to fend for themselves between meals. The libraries are just doing their part to help people cope.

Children run up and down the aisles screeching and yelling in my library these days. Makes you want to strangle the horrid parents. I don't understand how parents can be so self-absorbed, uncaring and rude these days. You don't want to blame the kids, because they haven't been taught. Unfortunately in this case, genetics teaches us that stupid people have stupid babies, so things perpetuate as generations unfold.

And you can't forget the library staff who don't enforce the 'quiet please' standards like they did when I was young.

Careful. If he hears someone calling him literate he may take offense.
