When a lot effort yields nothing.....

I just spent an hour driving around Lakewood looking for the new issue of The Advocate. It is a free publication available pretty much everywhere. Except, of course, when you are looking for a copy.

The crowning glory of the wild, Advocate goose hunt was when one of my coworkers had the brilliant idea of trying the Lakewood Public Library. Turns out, they have about five hundred copies of the latest Advocate magazine right inside their front door. I know this because I could see them stacked neatly on a rack to the left of the main entrance.

But was the library open?

OF COURSE NOT!

I am but a puppet on a string for the amusement of some higher power...

Why didn't you just read it online?

I did. But the museum needs copies because a grant funded project I've been working on was highlighted in the Lakewood issue. Institutional memory, you know?
