Cutting Libraries in a Recession...



"Cutting Libraries in a Recession is like Cutting Hospitals in a Plague."

I picked this up from Stephen Abram's website, Stephen's Lighthouse, where he said, "Print, enlarge, and post everywhere."

Great shirt! I haven't heard of any cuts in my city's system yet, thankfully.

Lesa said...

Isn't this a great shirt, Elizabeth? I feel the same way.

Lesa said...

Oh, Mary! You are so lucky. Where do you live that the library hasn't been cut?

Kay said...

A T-shirt dear to your heart I know, Lesa! I'm still groaning with sympathy for what you guys are going through. :-)

Lesa said...

Thank you, Kay. I know you understand!

That T-shirt says it perfectly! I love it.

Lesa said...

Me, too, Beth!

Simply put, I must have it of these! Thanks, Lesa.

Michael,

If you go to Stephen's website, you can find the link. For some reason, I just couldn't get the link to appear on my blog. I tried four or five times, but I just ended up frustrated.

Hope you had a good weekend at the LATimes Book Festival!

The thing is that hospitals are also being cut in this recession though.

St. Vincent's Hospital in NYC is being closed altogether. That is where tens of thousands of people go yearly for help. It served the poor and uninsured, the elderly, so many.

It's a huge loss to the community and to everyone.

There's where those injured in 9/11's tragedy went for medical care. People walked up there from downtown.

So my t-shirt would have to read, "Cutting libraries and hospitals in a recession, is like cutting rescue vehicles during a hurricane."

Kathy,

And, we know how well those rescue vehicles worked during Katrina, don't we?
