Porn Dude says, "Take it from me, man..."

Remember the hippie porn enthusiast who liked to cruise porn sites at our very public internet terminals? One day I glanced over and noticed that he was engrossed in a video of a woman on his screen who could only be doing one of two things, one of which was bobbing for apples, which I didn't think likely. I alerted my boss who had a little talk with him and he agreed to visit more family appropriate sites while at the library or to go down to the more private terminals at the Main.

Well, besides being addicted to free porn he's a big fat liar because on each of his subsequent visits to the library he has had to be warned again and again about his taste in internet sites. I also have noticed that he wears the exact same tie-dye everyday, and it has become increasingly filthy and his dreadlocks more matted. Sometimes there is a fine hygiene line between hippies and street people, but I suspect that this guy is actually living on the street or in one of those depressing residential hotels that this city has way too many of.

Well, my boss reported to me the other morning that he saw Porn Dude writhing on the ground outside the bakery down the street, sobbing and screaming to all the passerbyers giving him a wide berth,

"NEVER smoke meth, man!"

The Voice of Experience recovered enough to dust himself off and pay the library a visit a few hours after his public service announcement, and although I watched closely I did not catch him on any inappropriate sites. Maybe he is trying to clean up his act, and he's starting by curtailing his internet porn and trying to get the word about the dangers of smoking methamphetamine.

Someone who shall remain nameless basically accused of me of quashing Porn Fan's civil liberties because I alerted my manager to the HIGHLY inappropriate sites he was visting at our public terminals that have children walking by them at all times. This person's lame-o argument was:

"Well, it's just that I'm a libertarian. He should be able to look at whatever he wants at the library."

To which Elizabeth responded, "If you were really a libertarian you wouldn't believe in libraries in the FIRST place!"

"Oh."
