1934: The President of Bates College strides into Sumner’s dorm room,

points to, then swings wide his closet door.

“No diploma if you don’t do something about these.”

“These” being 4 years of library books not clothes.

Or so went the story offered up

to explain our caviler attitude on overdue books.

But arresting a man driving his kid to school

for keeping Freddy Got Fingered for 14 years?

Not April’s Fool. Not 1934.

by PATTY

Remember Rewind Be Kind & Return? Sounds like April Fool’s but the guy* who inadvertently kept a “Freddy Got Fingered” VHS (!!) tape for 14 years got arrested** for this while bringing his kid to school. Really? I react partly as my father’s daughter but mostly because we shouldn’t be criminalizing such cases.***

*James Meyers in North Carolina

**But! Good news. The STAR of FGF is helping Mr. Meyers. http://www.cbc.ca/radio/asithappens/as-it-happens-wednesday-edition-1.3512843/how-tom-green-helped-the-freddy-got-fingered-guy-after-his-arrest-1.3513289

***These cases should be decriminalized and handled in civil court like traffic tickets
