Really? Anti-library now?
Did you READ the article stating that other services besides book checkouts are serving the community?

Could it be that the first three letters of library are LIB?
Probably a big fan of conservatories, though, right?

Look it up in archived comment sections; I warned not to trust the morally challenged Ty Cobb "witch hunt" guys.
One down, one to go.

So what do we know about the construction on the NW corner of 6th and Wak? Looks like a five tenant building. Someone I'm related to by marriage is rooting for a west side Noodles & Co...

Ty Cobb the baseball player was a racist. Ty Cobb the lawyer protects a racist in the White House. The racist in the White House has longstanding ties to Russian oligarchs, which he has denied, and perhaps to their money laundering schemes. He calls the investigation into that, led by a career conservative BTW, a witch hunt. Interesting connections...

I have no idea what Chris Cobb did or said in the classroom. His case should be treated on its individual merits.

But I have had an insider's perspective on two free speech controversies in higher education where the accused have claimed persecution and misinterpretation and conspiracy against them. In both cases, those who were actually there have been incredibly persuasive about the tone and offensiveness of the comments. Also, in both cases, the offensive comments that were known to the outside world were the least of the educators' transgressions as they were disruptive forces in their workplaces that agitated their colleagues, behaved unprofessionally, and demoralized their students above and beyond racism or sexism.

Sometimes the lack of transparency to the media about the entire context protects the accused from public knowledge of their entire personnel record and conduct. It's amazing how often the bad ones are the ones who make the mistakes that culminate in controversy.
