Here's a choice tidbit from the article. "Doug Forsyth thinks libraries are rapidly becoming obsolete and should be downsized as the Internet era takes over…. He said if people want libraries, they should be willing to pay for the services themselves and not put the burden on other taxpayers who never use them…. He said the library should consider imposing user fees, and parents should be responsible for paying for their children who use the library. "If you can't feed them, don't breed them," he said."
My dad was a Jackson County Commissioner for a dozen years. I remember he used to worry how the county would fund services when the federal government stop paying timber funds. Now it's happening.
