Very well put, Jeff: "If future generations can't even turn a page, God help us" indeed. Somehow I see the definite possibilities of libraries going away to pay for stuff like that 875-bil tax cut the other day....something (!) has got to pay for that stuff, especially the extra feathers for the extra nests of the rich. Libraries would be a nice place to turn. And I doubt very much that all libraries would close and be replaced by a free Kindle for everyone in the country with access to what legislators would call "li-bary kinda stuff", or that phonebooth-kindle things would be on every street corner.
