I was biking onto campus when some folks told me to turn back. I thought maybe they were screwing with me, but that seemed odd. I wasn’t fully awake. But I started working my way west instead of south. Shortly after I heart the military-style roving loudspeakers, and I went back home. I’ve heard constant sirens and helicopters for the last hour or so (I live less than a mile from campus). The helicopters keep shaking my old windows.
Isn’t there a history of these sort of acts happening in libraries? Sad. There aren’t many institutions as neutral, welcoming, or innocent of power than libraries.
