Miss Information vows to fight the stupid people on the beaches

A college student approaches Miss Information. She doesn't appear to be an idiot--until she says this:

I need a biography of Winston Churchill. He was a journalist.

In fact, he was a journalist. Briefly. Then he went and got all political. Miss Information pointed out that most of the books would most likely concentrate on his career as Prime Minister. The student was surprised. He was Prime Minister?

Oh, dear.

And a painter! Hey maybe some of the culture vultures would like bio's on Winston as artist.

The Reader finds nothing to criticize in Miss Information’s latest entry, nor does he have anything to add. (The line, `Oh dear’ pretty well sums up The Reader’s opinion.)

Therefore, The Reader will proceed to relate a totally unrelated insight into his own entertainment preferences. The Reader has obtained DVDs of the TV series `Sleeper Cell’ and has begun watching them. During the second episode, one character utters this prophetic line: `In fifty years, every school in America will close for Ramadan.’

The Reader cannot help but speculate how that situation will affect the quantity and variety of materials available in Miss Information’s library.

I was once asked by an adult male who was walking upright if "the books on the shelves were in any particular order?"
