These gov't peeps that want to close them to save monies? Reminds me of ancient history when the Catholic church did not want any of the parishioners to be able to read.

Tell these gov't peeps to cut their staff members, cut their salaries and they will have monies needed FOR the people!


A few months ago I heard that the Encyclopedia Britannica was actually bought by the Catholic Church a number of years back, and that if ever ahve the opportunity to compare older versions (before the 1920s), to the current volumes, that many references that prortray The Churtch in a bad light have been completely edited.
There you go man, keep as cool as you can. Face piles and piles of trials with smiles. It riles them to believe that you perceive the web they weave. And keep on thinking free. (Moody Blues)

I prefer the 11th edition (pub. 1911, 29 vol). I searched for years to find all the volumes, but never found a single one in a library.
