Saturday Comic

Today’s comic is from April 3, 1974. It’s from Archie.

Back then a lot of kids tried to go barefoot in school (as opposed to the 1930s when many kids didn’t have to try—they just did). But this comic also points out another silly concern of the authorities.

For today let’s go with this Bizarro comic from October 1, 2015. The writer, Don Piraro, always has a different take on things.

Library Adventures — Part 3

When last I wrote about my library adventures (here is Part 1 and here is Part 2) regarding my local library, the one that I’d been using barefoot for nearly 20 years, I’d gotten to the point of being tossed three times because of their new shoe rule. I’d been denied in my official appeal to the library director and invoked my right to appeal to the full library Board of Trustees.

Library Adventures — Part 2

Last time, in Part 1, I described some of the background of my first lawsuit against a library. Writing that was prompted by my being ejected from my local Pickerington library for being barefoot, after nearly 20 years of being a barefooted patron there.

After my ejection (according to the director because I or another barefooted person might have Athlete’s foot and because they had kids on their floor, he could not take that risk) I wrote a letter to every member of the Board of Trustees.
