Tan Light Special

"Books on civil liberties? You'll have to search out the newly-created 'deluded fantasy' section, alongside the Robert Jordan novels."

This librarian seems to have incorporated political commentary into her filing duties, e'er causing confusion in the pursuit of more euro humor. But the euro's been up for quite some time now, prompting the question of what took her so long to notice. After all, she looks for all the world like a K-Mart employee.

That "Books" sign is both garish and redundant. And psychological studies aside, I don't think the colors tan, orange and puke-brown incite a great deal of literate-minded curiosity on the part of library patrons. It just might make them nauseous.
