Patron: Who is that on your shirt, there? Barack Obama?
Other Patron: Yeah! And Martin Luther King!
Patron: Oh. I see. And what does it say there?
Other Patron: It says, "A legacy of progress."
Patron: Huh. And you paid money for that?
This patron was the same one that had previously been asking for books about the Trail of Tears to see if she recognized herself in any of them. I told this to the other patron with the Obama shirt after I pulled her away so she would not feel bad about what was said to her about her shirt.
Criticizing clothing does not belong at the library, folks. It belongs on the internet.
