Friday, June 26, 2009 | Scott Lewis makes light of the significance of a new central library. The great digital divide is really the great age divide in my opinion. “At 20 years of age the will reigns; at 30 the wit, at 40 the judgment.”(Ben Franklin) In Lewis’s youthful wit, he can tweak the desire of those way over forty who value the public place a library provides, the need for San Diego to grow up and show up for a city missing a big part of the grown up part: a central library promised for years.

Having grown up in New England in a town that produced no Rhodes Scholars but a lot of educated people, I would ask Scott to go to the website: www.Stratford Check out the library hours; 10-8 Monday through Thursday, 10-5, Fri/Sat, and 1-5 on Sundays from Oct-May. This town of under 50,000 in Connecticut serves grownups, sees the need for real learning in a lovely environment.

Leadership on the City Council should support this project without involving City Schools in my opinion, but that is another story. Scott Lewis can keep his witty comments on the “libary,” but look beyond the next twitter, the next week, and move this project forward.
