More Library Talk

Filed under: Gil Thorp — nedryerson @ 5:44 am

Zane Clark has had enough of Abel Brito’s constant harping on the library and he’s also had enough green beans and cauliflower, so he’s outta there. (He’s like Doug Guthrie, who we may not hear from again once he supplied the GTO for last seasons big finish. So Doug Guthrie is outta heeere.) Zane is going to head to the library and do some more studying, so stow it Abel!

Katy Brito walks Zane to his car and now she has to hear more library jibba jabba now that her father got Zane all wound up and on the defensive. Zane works hard and doesn’t complain, but we don’t know what that has to do with anything. Does he work hard in the library and not complain when someone sits next to him chomping on gum at one of the library computers? His real beef should be with Abel Brito even bringing it up to him.

Zane’s last statement makes it sound like he is familiar with the party line of library advocates and not just expressing his own self interest. That’s right, Zane. The library and it’s programs are a service to the community and the return on investment for allocating resources to the library is not going to be measurable with a simple balance sheet. Zane himself serves as an illustration of the payoff for funding the library. Go ahead and get your presentation ready, Zane. It looks like you will be presenting it to Chekov’s Library Board before the end of this arc.


  1. P 4: “….and who the fuck is he to sling shit?…. this unemployed jag-off spends two days there and now he thinks it should be closed down?….fuck….what an old windbag….I’ll see you later…… maybe….”

  2. Zane is wasting green beans and cauliflower (my guess was mash potatoes). That’ll piss off Brito. There was an episode of Impractical Jokers where the boys dared each other to make noise at the library. One example was clanging cymbals together. I don’t think Brito has a sense of humor. He’ll just unplug the computer.
    I think the library IS a profit center. They charge 5 cents a day for over due books!

  3. And by ‘going to the library’, Zane means “I’m going to degrade your daughter with lots of awkward unprotected sex…”

  4. “Heyyyyyyyyyy, Mr. C, I don’t go to the library myself but if Richie has to do a term paper on “Alexander and the Conquest of Egypt”, what’s he going to do if you vote to cut back the Non-Fiction section?”
    “Arthur’s right, Howard. Oh, please reconsider ehen you go to the Milford Town Board meeting on Tuesday.”
