You're A Mean One, Mr. Grump

Although he's had several good posts this year, Andrew Pace sneaks in a great entry for "post of the year" just under the wire. Be sure to read the whole thing.

The Grump Who Stole Libraries


"And the Grump, with his eyes crossed in self-righteous glow,
Stood puzzling and puzzling: 'How could it be so?
'It came without Java! It came without stats!
'It came without perl scripts, and searches with splats!'
And he puzzled through breaktime, 'til his puzzler was sore,
Then the Grump thought of something he hadn't before!
'Maybe libraries don't come from a computer store.
'Maybe libraries...perhaps...mean a little bit more.' " [Hectic Pace]
