The World's Worst Librarian

Yesterday, I fired off this e-mail to Jonnie "Hannover" Hargis, and now I'm just making good on my promise. Enjoy.

Read more!
Mr. Hargis,

You changed the below thread to the following title: "Jewish Quarterly Review 1935 -1972, no mention of genocide"

http://forum.codoh.com/viewtopic.php?t=3836


I have appended below all the references to either the word "holocaust" or "genocide" between 1935 and 1972 for your review.

You have until these evening to retract your remarks. Otherwise, I and my colleagues will publish your gaffe on the HC blog.

Yours truly,
Andrew E. Mathis (Dr.)

You are insulting the librarians. "World's worst librarian ASISSTANT" would be more appropriate. I guess it is inevitable to get filled with hate and bitterness when you spend your life reshelving books.

"Correction to Democracy Now in Exile: Hargis is a library assistant at
ucla. CUE represents clerical workers at UC system. AFT is the union for
represented librarians."
