Come by the Main Library (501 Copper NW) to decide for yourself. Telltale features works by Sazynski and True Blood comics writer Mariah McCourt, among others. The show runs through March 31.

George Washington Was a Scofflaw
By Courtney Blandford, fearless intern [ Wed Apr 21 2010 3:34 PM ]
According to a ledger from New York City’s oldest library, George Washington owes 220 years worth of late fees for two books he checked out during his presidency. The books were due on November 2, 1789, but were never returned, which merits a late fee of about $300,000 at today’s prices, adjusted for inflation. Though the library is not seeking payment of the fines, it would very much like the two books back. One was the “Law of Nations,” a book on international law, and the other was a volume of debates from Britain’s House of Commons.
