    though not without cutbacks. (my librarian friend is being asked to take more unpaid days off this year). However, libraries are the one thing that people always vote to fund. But that's probably because the majority of the voting public is fairly educated and progressive, which then in turn leads to a better appreciation of the importance of libraries. That's the whole problem with the Republican ignoramus downward spiral: you keep cutting education, you get a more ignorant populace who are more likely to vote for education-bashing Republicans. And voila, more Republicans in office to cut more education. Vicious cycle.
