    Amazing! The Brooklyn Public Library defrauds the federal government of over 2 1/2 million dollars, The New York Public Library has a president making way over 1/2 million a year and who is part of the 0.19% for pleading guilty to a DUI/DWI offense he got while driving the “public” library’s car with a ).19% BAC, and the New York libraries serve up unlimited porn so bad that even the Brooklyn DA is referred a victim to me, and Carnegie feels the need to reward that with $5 million more.

    Amazing!

    How about if Carnegie gives to deserving libraries instead, like the Cumberland County Library now being threatened with closure? http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.thedailyjournal.com%2Fapps%2Fpbcs.dll%2Farticle%3FAID%3D2011312220023&h=TAQGfu8NiAQHq8EdD_DkwH0XukjeuKk2BVUfuZyaeUaaqjA

    The New York libraries are quite capable of stealing or wasting funding as they see fit and do not need an additional $5 million. I call for Carnegie to support struggling libraries, not stealing libraries.
