Scanning the Paper
July 10th, 2009 by Mike

As you’ve probably noticed, I haven’t published anything substantial in quite some time. I’ve just not been very motivated to express my observations of the world lately. Maybe I’m just lazy.

Anyway, not to break the string of insubstantial posts, here’s a fun article I found in this morning’s The Daily Sun:

Wilmington News Journal, Delaware.

In an effort to have a little fun and reverse an age-old stuffy stereotype, teams of librarians across the country are gearing up to compete this weekend in the Book Cart Drill Team World Championship in Chicago at the American Library Association’s annual meeting.

Think a blend of synchronized swimming and Rockette-style dancing.

This will be the third year the Delaware Diamonds have competed. The first year, they came in third. Last year, they didn’t place. But this year, they’re going for the ultimate prize: a gold book cart.

I think this would be loads of fun to observe.
