A little late to matter

Hey, the JS finally got around to reporting on the Milwaukee Public Library's new policy of refusing to allow patrons to reserve electronic media.

It's not exactly a new issue -- milwaukeerising.net, the site formerly known as storyhill.net, reported on it Oct. 1.

The JS has a handful more readers than milwaukeerising.net does -- had the JS reported on this matter before the budget was adopted, perhaps people would have come out to the public hearings and protested the policy change. Maybe it wouldn't have happened.

Alas, however, the JS didn't see fit to report on a proposed policy change that would affect thousands and thousands of people. There must have been something more important things going on -- maybe Brett Favre sneezing, Brett Favre coughing, three front page photos of Brett Favre, and Deanna's favorite recipes.
