Local Freedom Fighters Emerge

FreedomFighters.jpgBased on this image captured in a recent photograph, a local band of freedom fighters has emerged in Northfield.

Battling against Big Brother’s control of reading material, first through an oligarchical position in the on-line supply and more recently in a nearly monopolistic share of the electronic consumption, these determined sons for literary liberty are distributing books that are made of paper and ink. Not discouraged by the scorn of the Kindle-lites, the paperback patriots are turning pages for self-determination.

It is clear from this snapshot that the soundtrack for their struggle will be provided by The Clash.

    Ross, by publicizing your illegal book-sharing, you Lynne Young/librarian types are undermining Division St. booksellers. It’s as bad as illegal music-file-sharing!

    Griff –

    In fact, both books were originally purchased at Division Street booksellers, not on-line.

    Doug and I are probably the only two people in Northfield interested in them.
