Maybe that's why in my mind librarians were nicer in the "good old days;" because my good old days were spent growing up in very rural areas with dinky little libraries with just one or two librarians running the place. They weren't overly friendly, but they certainly weren't grumpy or irritable. But they didn't have to deal with all the issues that big city librarians have to deal with. :)

An interesting follow-up article posted by Keith FitzpatrIck-Matthews on the Bad Archaeology blog, discussing the theories expounded in the initial newspaper articles about the King Arthur's Round Table story.

And the exchange of comments at the end of the article by both men is well worth reading!
