Since when have terrorists cared about great historical writers?

re: a brief rant about libraries

Sounds like a pretty weaksauce library, to not have any of the authors you mentioned, although I am no fan of some of them. No library should be bereft of a broad selection of the "classic" authors. Sounds like a good subject to discuss with a librarian, or if they have an organized group that helps support or donate funds and/or books, to bring to their attention.

My list would omit Vonnegut and swap in Asimov, Arthur C. Clark, and Heinlein, and see if they just happen to have a copy of Augustine's "Confessions," or a selection of ancient literature such as Homer or any of the works of Greek/Roman philosophers. Bonus points if they have books from authors that influenced the American founders, such as The Spirit of Law by Montesquieu, or any of John Locke... or Samuel Rutherford's Lex, Rex. Or maybe Democracy in America by Tocqueville.

But then, it sounds like they are the sort of library that ignores all of that.

But what's the issue with this Nora Roberts? I'd never heard of her. From the sound of your post, it sounds like she's problematic. What's up with her?
