Ready to ‘drop the hammer’ if library porn hucksters keep it up

Dear Editor,
Recently the library Internet pornography issue was revisited in
a shameful attempt to use it to block Measures A and B.
At the end of the 1990’s, I exposed that hoax for what it was.
If this false controversy is not returned to the garbage can from
which it was taken, I will again name names, dates, and events.
Dear Editor,

Recently the library Internet pornography issue was revisited in a shameful attempt to use it to block Measures A and B.

At the end of the 1990’s, I exposed that hoax for what it was. If this false controversy is not returned to the garbage can from which it was taken, I will again name names, dates, and events. I will expose it all in one clean sweep, it will not be drawn out over time ’til the public becomes bored with the details. I will not give the denials and innuendoes a chance to cloud the issues of fact again. I will just drop the hammer.

Do not let it be said I’m making threats as a way of attempting to make this issue appear as some kind of attention getting scam on behalf of the library. The people who were involved at the time know the details and know this is not a threat, it is a promise.

Now for the issue of Measures A and B. The public library system provides the greatest value return on each dollar spent that anyone is ever going to find anywhere.

The very best way to guarantee that little Dick and Jane will develop a lifetime love of books and of reading is in early and frequent visits to the public library. As well as providing a child a guaranteed head start in their lifelong education.

Free public libraries are the only known antidote to ignorance.

For anyone who chants the mantra “I disapprove of taxes or any form of tax increases in principle …” to them I say, then vote your conscience. But don’t engage in hyperbole propaganda in a cheap attempt to persuade people to get on board your band wagon, they can turn on you fast when they discover that they were conned.
